Lifting of restrictions on passenger movement between Estonia and Finland
According to the decision of the Finnish Government, the passenger movement restrictions in Finnish ports will be abolished as of 15.06.2020 at 00:00 and passengers arriving from Estonia to Finland will no longer have to remain in quarantine for 14 days. From 15 June, anyone will be able to travel (including for tourism purposes) between Finland and the Baltic States (including Estonia), Denmark, Norway and Iceland without the need to remain in quarantine after the trip. Estonia opened its borders to arrivals from most European countries (incl. Finland) without the requirement to remain in quarantine already on 28.05.2020.
The opening of the Estonian-Finnish border will help to restart passenger transport on the Tallinn-Helsinki and Muuga-Vuosaari shipping lines. In the summer months of 2019, 3 million people traveled by ship between Estonia and Finland, 53% of them Finns and 24% Estonians.
