If you want to bring your pet to Finland, familiarize yourself with the import requirements imposed by the Finnish Food Safety Authority.

There are several requirements to bring your pet to Finland, and your animal will need:

1. A pet passport (EU citizens) or veterinary certificate (non-EU travelers)

2. Microchip or tattoo identification

3. Rabies vaccination (min. 21 days before travel)

4. Tapeworm treatment (min. 30 days before travel)

Note: Exempt from tapeworm treatment are pets from Great Britain, Norway, Sweden

5. In addition, animals from outside the EU must enter Finland through “approved points of entry”, e.g. Helsinki Vantaa Airport.

General Information

Finland is a Nordic country situated in the Fennoscandian region of northern Europe. It borders Sweden on the west, Russia on the east, and Norway on the north, while Estonia lies to its south across the Gulf of Finland. The capital city is Helsinki.

Finland is a country of thousands of lakes and islands – 187,888 lakes (larger than 500 m) and 179,584 islands. One of these lakes, Saimaa, is the fourth largest in Europe. The Finnish landscape is mostly flat with few hills, and its highest point, the Halti at 1,324 meters, is found in the extreme north of Lapland at the border between Finland and Norway. The landscape is covered mostly (seventy-five percent of land area) by coniferous taiga forests and fens, with little arable land. The most common type of rock is granite.
