We recommend a full set of Covid-19 vaccinations for all students going abroad. We also recommend you to consider your target country choice in the light of its epidemic situation.

If you decide to carry out your exchange, make sure to check your insurance terms and conditions, especially for travel restrictions cases. Should the exchange later be interrupted due to the corona situation, the grant for exchange studies may have to be paid back. However, if the situation can be considered to be a Force Majeure case, this will be taken into account for the benefit of the student.

Note that all international mobilities need to be informed to LAB International Services through LAB Mobility-Online. Further information

Up-to-date travel recommendations can be found on the Ministry for Foreign Affairs' website:

Also remember to follow Finnish Institute for health and welfare's website, e.g. Travel and the corona virus pandemic,
