Traffic restrictions,  set by the Government of Finland, will be assessed approximately every two weeks. Work-related travelling is currently allowed in the traffic which exceeds the inner limits of Schengen Area.

For University staff work-related travel within Finland is allowed only if it is unavoidable.  International travel is not possible at present.  More information in Patio (for staff).

Check the Ministry for Foreign Affairs website for the latest travel advisories.


Questions and answers

I have returned from a trip abroad. What should I do now? Do I need to switch to working / studying remotely?

The risk of coronavirus infection has increased throughout Europe and around the world. When returning from abroad from a country that is under restrictions by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, one should self-quarantine for 10 days. If you return from a country not under public authorities´ restrictions and border control, you can return to campus without quarantine. Remote work/study should be continued according to instructions given by the University.

 You can contact your supervisor or course tutor in further questions.
