Health security measures at the point of entry are determined by the Communicable Diseases Act (2016/1227).

These countries have been laid down in a Government Decree.

Getting the coronavirus test result

If you have been directed to testing through Finentry, you can also see the test result in the Finentry service. For Finnish citizens, the result is also visible in My Kanta.

If you have contracted COVID-19, you will receive a call from the communicable diseases unit; the call will come from an unknown number.

Foreign people will receive their test result as a text message to the number they indicate in the personal information form.

Avoid contact with people outside your household after arrival by staying at home or at your place of accommodation until receiving a negative test result. If you test positive, you should continue to isolate and wait for health care to contact you. If your health deteriorates, contact a health care provider. Leaving the house for necessary reasons, such as visiting a doctor, is allowed. However, keeping a safe distance and wearing a mask according to current recommendations is important.
