Accepted vaccination and test certificates 

Finnish border and health authorities check required travel documents and certificates when you arrive in Finland or may require airlines to do so at your departure airport. Please prepare to show your travel documents and corona related certificates at any point of your journey. At Helsinki Airport, please follow the Exit or Transfer flights signs depending on where you are heading next. On your way you are guided through a coronavirus certificate check point. This concerns you even if you have a connecting flight within Finland. Please be prepared to present your boarding pass from the flight that you arrived in Finland with, and the coronavirus certificates that you may have.

There is a fast lane for those arriving with a double vaccination certificate or a recovery certificate. In other cases, you are asked to show your FINENTRY summary screen or fill in a personal information form at the coronavirus check point. In case you arrive with a flight from a non-Schengen country, you will first go through immigration. It is good to know that there may be queues at times at the certificate check points. 

To read more about accepted certificates, please go to the website of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare.
