The government on Thursday decided to reinstate inbound travel restrictions on Singapore following the increasing trend of coronavirus infections in the country, said the Ministry of the Interior in a press release on Thursday.

The restriction will enter into force on 20 September.

No other changes will be introduced to the restrictions. The existing restrictions on entry at external borders will be extended until 10 October.

However, people may still enter Finland from all countries upon presenting an approved certificate of a full course of vaccination.

External border traffic refers to traffic between Finland and non-Schengen third countries.

If a person arriving from a country subject to the restrictions is not fully vaccinated, the accepted reasons for entry are return travel to Finland, return travel to other EU or Schengen countries, transit on regular, scheduled flights at an airport or other essential travel.
