Message for U.S. Citizens: Departing Finland for the United States

International commercial flights continue to depart Helsinki-Vantaa airport and Mariehamn airport.  U.S. citizens seeking to depart Finland should work with the airlines to arrange travel.  Departing U.S. citizens should monitor the entry and exit requirements of any third country they are transiting, available on the U.S. Embassy’s COVID-19 Information page for that country.

The Police of Finland have published updated guidance, clarifying that U.S. citizens may travel from outside of the Uusimaa region to depart through the Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Travelers should be prepared to show documentation of the travel reservation and should not be accompanied by non-travelers.  The Police of Finland recommend traveling to the airport by public transportation.
