About this site

Welcome to the travel notification service at matkustusilmoitus.fi. Matkustusilmoitus.fi is a register maintained by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, in which Finnish citizens and foreigners who have a residence permit in Finland are travelling abroad, can use this travel registration service to submit their travel plans and contact details to the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Finnish citizens moving abroad or already living abroad can also provide their contact details through the service. The data may be used for no other than necessary official purposes and submitting a travel notification is entirely voluntary. However, it is advisable especially if the security situation in the destination causes concern.

Should a crisis occur, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs can contact the Finns who have entered their travel details in the service. Examples of crisis situations include major disasters, devastating natural catastrophes or situations entailing evacuation.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Finnish mission in the affected area cannot still guarantee Finnish citizens' security abroad. The public authorities of the affected country are primarily responsible for the security of all persons staying in the country, and their instructions must be observed. The ultimate responsibility for the decision to travel and choices relating to security are on the traveller.
