Finland is banning tourists from Estonia, starting Monday, 28 September, due to Estonia’s coronavirus infection rate.

The Finnish government decided that Estonians can only enter the country to return home, to go to work, for transiting through or for an emergency reason. For the purposes of tourism, Estonians can for the time being no longer travel to Finland.

In addition to Estonia, Finland is imposing these sanctions also on Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Germany and Slovakia. The land borders between Finland and Norway and Finland and Sweden will remain open and people entering through there will not need to quarantine, the Estonian foreign ministry said.
