Can medicines be sent by mail?

If you send medicines from Finland

There are no export restrictions on medicinal products sent by mail. Every country has its own legislation determining what can be brought in or sent to the country.

  • It’s your responsibility to find out the import restrictions that apply in the country of destination. Finnish Customs does not have any information on the provisions of other countries.

You can get more information about the restrictions e.g. from the country’s authorities.

Sending medicines to Finland

  • Private persons are not allowed to send medicines from abroad to Finland.

A person staying in Finland cannot receive medicines or medicinal products from another private person. The nationality of the sender or the recipient is of no significance.
