Travelling to the Caribbean region
Travellers should check the situation in their travel destination from their travel organiser or from local sources, such as hotels. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs recommends that anyone travelling to the area submit their travel plans and contact details on matkustusilmoitus.fi. Should the security situation require, all Finns in the region who have submitted a travel notification can be reached.
Several hurricanes have caused devastation on islands in the Caribbean region. Some of the islands have suffered widespread damage and in places reconstruction will take years. The hurricane season is continuing and the possibility of new damages cannot be excluded.
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs does not maintain travel advice concerning all of the Caribbean islands, which is why we urge both travel organisers and travellers to also follow the other Nordic countries’ travel advice.
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs publishes travel advice on nearly 160 countries. Travel advice is not maintained concerning countries, where we do not have actual possibilities to provide updates of the local security situation.
