(updated 17.9.2021)

Current instructions related to the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes have been compiled on this page.

The Finnish National Agency for Education cannot issue general instructions regarding the recommencement of international activities on behalf of the Erasmus + and the European Solidarity Corps programmes.  There are no administrative obstacles to launching physical mobility periods from the point of view of the programmes, if the implementation of the mobility period is possible for the sending and receiving organisations and the epidemic situation allows it. It is important to take care of the insurance policies related to the activities and to ensure their coverage.

We recommend that you follow the instructions issued by the authorities and contact your partners. 

For any programme participants arriving in Finland from abroad, we recommend that you pay special attention to the instructions issued by the Border Guard. No travel restrictions are currently in place for those arriving from EU and Schengen countries. You should note, however, that the obligations laid down in the Communicable Diseases Act apply to everyone arriving in Finland, regardless of their country of origin. 

Follow national authorities’ communications (you will move to another service): 

For information on travelling abroad from Finland, you should visit the website ReopenEU, on which you can find up-to-date information on coronavirus measures in various European countries, including quarantine and testing requirements for travellers.
