Estonian citizens and foreign nationals

Countries may establish preventive measures at short notice in order to stop the spread of new strains of the virus. Register your trip so that the Foreign Ministry can contact you quickly if necessary and regularly check the rules and restrictions established in your country of location by following the Reisi Targalt website and the news of the Foreign Ministry.
Restrictions in force

In order to avoid the spread of the virus and getting infected, to protect the life and health of the people and to ensure the functioning of the society, it is necessary to follow the enacted restrictions and guidelines.

Restrictions in force
The meters of risk level

The main meters are the number on people infected with COVID-19 and the number of people hospitalised. The Government reviews the risk level once a week.

Instructions for how to behave at different risk levels

What should I keep in mind when planning a trip abroad?

  • The conditions for entering and staying in a country can be changed at very short notice. Before your trip, check the travel restrictions on the Reisi Targalt website and the EU ReOpen portal and contact the foreign representation of the country of destination for further information.
  • Register your trip on the Reisi Targalt website so that we can keep you informed of developments, if required.
  • Follow the recommendations of the Health Board on safe flying and if you start to display any symptoms of the illness prior to departure, postpone your trip and contact your doctor.
  • Take out travel insurance, carefully reviewing the terms and conditions (including those pertaining to travel interruptions caused by COVID-19).
  • Follow the instructions issued by the authorities in the country or countries you travel to and keep yourself up to date on possible new restrictions.
  • Make sure you know how and where to get medical care when travelling.
  • Call the helpline of your doctor if you suspect you may have contracted the virus. From abroad, call +372 6346 630. Experienced medics, doctors and nurses give you advice 24h a day, including weekends and national holidays.
  • When you return from your trip, follow the rules that have been established in Estonia and contact your doctor if you suspect you may have contracted the virus.

    Which coronavirus test is accepted when travelling?

    • You must get a paid test, which is offered at testing points located in the different regions of Estonia.
    • The test results will be given to you in the agreed manner and people who have an Estonian ID code can view them in the environment and in the app, where a certificate can be generated free of charge.
    • If you are unable to generate a digital test certificate yourself, the person who tested you will issue a certificate that’s suitable for travelling.
    • Testing on the basis of a doctor’s or close contact’s referral is free of charge for people and the cost is covered by the state, so travelling with the result of this test is not allowed. It’s possible to check on the border whether the person who goes travelling paid for the test themselves or has used a doctor’s referral.
    • If you’ve been tested for the coronavirus as a close contact on the tenth day and the result is negative, you can use it to go travelling.
    • Also, when you return from abroad and get tested twice to shorten the period of self-isolation, you can use the last test to return to the foreign country (i.e. as a negative test before travelling).

    Mida peab teadma naaberriikidesse reisimisel?

    • Soome ja Eesti vaheline lennu- ja laevaliiklus toimub, kuid vaata enne reisi planeerimist laeva- ja lennufirmade kodulehelt üle, kas reisigraafikus on muudatusi. 

    • Soome lubatakse piiranguteta inimesed, kes saabuvad madala nakatumisriskiga riikidest ja inimesed, kes tõendavad oma täielikku vaktsineeritust või seda, et on viimase kuue kuu jooksul haiguse läbi põdenud.

    • Riiki lubatakse ka inimesed, kellel on ette näidata 72 tunni jooksul enne reisi tehtud negatiivne koroonatest või nad on saanud esimese vaktsiinidoosi vähemalt kaks nädalat enne Soome saabumist, kuid nemad peavad tegema koroonatesti kolm kuni viis päeva pärast riiki saabumist. 

    • Inimesed, kes ei täida ühtki eelnimetatud tingimust, peavad kohe Soome saabudes tegema testi ning kordustesti kolme kuni viie päeva pärast. 

    • Tervisekaitsemeetmetega saab tutvuda FINENTRY veebiteenuses. 

    • Lätti sisenemise piirangud sõltuvad riigist, kust isik siseneb ja sellest, kas oled koroonaviiruse vastu täielikult vaktsineeritud, viimase 180 päeva jooksul viiruse läbipõdenud või mitte.
    • Vaktsineerimiskuuri läbinud ja viiruse läbipõdenud inimesed võivad Lätti siseneda ilma testi tõendita ja isolatsiooni jääma ei pea.

    • Kõik Lätti reisijad (ka transiidi, kaubavedude puhul) peavad kuni 48h enne piiriületust täitma elektroonilise ankeedi. Transiidi puhul tuleb Läti läbida 12h jooksul alates elektroonilise ankeedi täitmisest (v.a erandid). Ankeedi täitjad saavad QR-koodi, mis tuleb esitada piirivalveametnikule.

    How can I get medical care in Europe?

    • In the case of minor health issues, you can get primary medical advice by calling the Estonian GP helpline, which is available 24h a day and offers help in Estonian and Russian. You should contact your next of kin and then your insurance company if you fall ill or suffer an accident. If necessary, the consul can advise you on where to get the medical care you need in your country of location and inform your next of kin in Estonia at your request.
    • In most European countries, people who have Estonian health insurance are given necessary medical assistance on the same grounds as the people living in these countries (incl. in the case of the coronavirus).
    • Necessary medical assistance means that you developed an unexpected medical condition when abroad and need treatment (i.e. you didn’t go abroad specifically to receive treatment).
    • In order to receive treatment, go to a doctor in a national medical institution, as the European Health Insurance Card is only accepted in medical institutions belonging to the national system.
    • Bring your identity document and the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or a replacement card. If you don't have either of these, you must apply for a replacement of the European Health Insurance Card as soon as you go to the hospital or doctor.
    • You must pay certain expenses related to necessary medical assistance (appointment fee, daily bed charge) as well as transport between countries, etc., which will not be reimbursed.
    • You should always have travel insurance with medical assistance cover when you travel abroad, as it will cover any unexpected medical expenses.
    • If you have the European Health Insurance Card as well as travel insurance, you will only be billed for the cost-sharing, which you can then submit to your private insurer.
