Finland offers protection
Finland offers protection to Ukrainian people and families who are fleeing war or persecution. The authorities are flexible to the citizens of EU and Schengen countries who are in transit when exiting Russia and to other people in emergency.
The Finnish Border Guard ensures border security in all circumstances
The Finnish borders are stable and Finland is not currently exposed to any substantially increased risks related to border security.
The Finnish Border Guard ensures border security in all circumstances. We follow closely our area of responsibility as well as situations affecting border security with other authorities. We regulate our preparedness according to the situations and we are prepared for disruptions.
In all work of the Finnish Border Guard basic and human rights are always respected.
