Plants in removal goods

Plants, pot plants and plant products

There are restrictions on importing plants, parts of plants and plant products from EU countries, from non-EU countries and from countries outside Europe.

By contacting the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira, you can find out in advance whether the product you are planning to import is allowed, and whether a phytosanitary certificate is required. Evira’s website also has information on import prohibitions and certificate requirements. Evira is responsible for the import prohibitions and import requirements.

Points to consider

Even when you bring in orchids for your private use, you need a CITES export permit or a re-export certificate from the country of export as well as an import permit issued by the Finnish Environment Institute. You also need a phytosanitary certificate if you bring in more than 20 orchids.
