The FINENTRY ser­vice that guides peo­ple who trav­el to Fin­land dur­ing the pan­dem­ic is tak­en into use today in Cen­tral Ostrobothnia

The Finen­try ser­vice is tak­en into use today 21st of June 2021 in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia. FINENTRY (www.finentry.fi/en) is a dig­i­tal ser­vice that is used on a brows­er. It makes trav­el­ling to Fin­land and coro­n­avirus test­ing in con­nec­tion with trav­el­ling to Fin­land eas­i­er dur­ing the coro­n­avirus pandemic.

From the FINENTRY ser­vice, a per­son who is plan­ning a trip to Fin­land gets instruc­tions on mea­sures con­nect­ed to the coro­n­avirus that are required when com­ing to Fin­land. Via the ser­vice, a trav­eller may book an appoint­ment to a coro­n­avirus test in Fin­land to a test­ing site main­tained by one of FINENTRY’s con­tract part­ners or receives instruc­tions on how to orga­nize test­ing some­where else. 

The FINENTRY ser­vice makes com­ing to Fin­land smoother dur­ing the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic. From the ser­vice, a trav­eller receives infor­ma­tion and instruc­tions on coro­n­avirus test­ing and self-quar­an­tine. In the FINENTRY ser­vice, you can for example:

  • book an appointment to a coronavirus test in Finland
  • receive instructions by text message on how to go to a test
  • receive results from a coronavirus test by text message.

Use of FINENTRY is rec­om­mend­ed to every­one who trav­els to Fin­land, both Finns who are return­ing to the coun­try and for­eign­ers com­ing to the country

Ser­vice in dif­fer­ent languages

The ser­vice is updat­ed in accor­dance with instruc­tions from Finnish author­i­ties and makes it eas­i­er to receive updat­ed instruc­tions and updat­ing instruc­tions in dif­fer­ent lan­guages. The ser­vice is ini­tial­ly avail­able in Finnish, Swedish and Eng­lish and grad­u­al­ly on sev­er­al oth­er lan­guages. The ser­vice can be used on a mobile phone or a brows­er and use of it is vol­un­tary and free of charge.

The FINENTRY ser­vice takes into account dif­fer­ent groups of trav­ellers, e.g. Finns who are return­ing home and trav­ellers who are com­ing to Fin­land because of work, stud­ies or some oth­er rea­son. Tak­ing the FINENTRY ser­vice into use, does not affect the restric­tions on trav­el­ling to the coun­try, which are mon­i­tored by the bor­der con­trol author­i­ties at the bor­der cross­ing points.

The aim of FINENTRY is to make the mea­sures con­nect­ed to health secu­ri­ty and to trav­el­ling into the coun­try smoother for both author­i­ties and trav­ellers. The Finnish author­i­ties hope that as many as pos­si­ble of those who trav­el to Fin­land use FINENTRY. This is why the ease of use is also devel­oped continually.

The ser­vice has been designed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with health and safe­ty author­i­ties as well as  trans­port oper­a­tors. The Hos­pi­tal Dis­trict of Helsin­ki and Uusi­maa (HUS) acts as the tech­ni­cal pro­duc­er for the service.
