Safe travel during coronavirus
Are you planning to travel and need a certificate proving you are fit to travel? Some countries require a negative coronavirus test result and a certificate from passengers arriving in the country.
Before travelling, check the latest travel restrictions and guidelines by country from our travel requirements map. Many countries require a coronavirus test, and you may obtain the required certificates from any chosen service provider, as long as the certificate fulfils the requirements of your destination country.
We want to ensure you easy access to testing services at a discounted price and have partnered with private Finnish healthcare service company Terveystalo. You can start your journey with peace of mind, as you are provided with an adequate test and a certificate that fulfils your destination country’s requirements.
You can also choose a test-only option and have your test result through the Oma Terveys service immediately after the result is ready. This option serves for example Finnish nationals, who return home from a high-risk country and want to shorten the quarantine by getting tested after arrival.
PCR test from nose and throat used by Terveystalo meets the international quality standards. This method is the most accepted coronavirus test around the world. Terveystalo also offers rapid antigen testing from nose and throat or IgM antibody testing through a blood sample that some countries require to allow entry to the country.
