Flights can be taken to the following destinations:

During the week, the following routes will be added:

At its cabinet meeting on August 28, the Government decided on the exceptions concerning Warsaw, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Riga, Helsinki and London. It is possible to open routes with these destinations from Estonia regardless of the infection rate for the last 14 days.

At the cabinet meeting of 29 September, the government supported the proposal to allow future flights to and from countries where the infection rate per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days is below double the EU average shown on the website of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Starting from 12 October, the self-isolation requirement does not extend to people arriving in Estonia from countries, where the infection rate is below 25 per 100,000 inhabitants. If the infection rate is between 25 and 50, self-isolation depends on the fact whether it is lower or higher than the 1.1-times rate of Estonia. If the infection rate is lower than that in Estonia, there is no need for self-quarantine, if higher, the 10-day isolation requirement shall apply. If people come to Estonia from a country, where the infection rate is 50 and more per 100,000 inhabitants, the self-isolation is a must.

When travelling, we advise keeping the following in mind:

  • Consult the Foreign Ministry website for the infection rate in your country of destination before planning the trip.
  • Stay up to date with possible travel restrictions in your country of destination – consult the Reisi Targalt website, the ReOpen portal of the European Union, and, if necessary, contact the foreign mission of the country of destination for details.
  • Register your trip at the Foreign Ministry’s Reisi Targalt website to allow the ministry to notify you of possible travel restrictions;
  • Follow the recommendations of the Estonian Health Board for a safe flight to protect your health and that of others – if you show symptoms, please postpone your trip and contact your GP;
  • Obtain travel insurance and carefully read the conditions of your insurance (including for travel interruptions caused by COVID-19);
  • In the country of destination, follow the instructions of local authorities and keep up to date with possible new restrictions;
  • When returning from a trip, fill in the passenger locator form. The form can be filled in by persons with Estonian identification code as well as foreigners arriving in the country and it can be filled at the earliest 24 hours before arriving in Estonia.
  • On your return, follow the rules introduced in Estonia, monitor your health, and if you suspect you have been infected with the virus, contact your GP.

Starting from 1 September, all passengers arriving in the country via the airport can take a free initial coronavirus test at the airport (it is free for Estonian citizens, foreigners can take the test for a fee).
