The State's travel support service applies to trips that occur outside of Finland and that involve a person who is in an employment relationship with the state. The travel support service scheme also covers any trips outside the destination country by the person who is on an official journey. The coverage is valid without any regional restrictions for the entire duration of the official journey. The coverage therefore also applies to any vacations and personal trips that are done during an official journey.

The coverage is secondary in relation to any other statutory protection schemes that are based on the employment relationship.

For more detailed information on the travel protection scheme, see the Law on compensation for damage on state official journeys, 530/2017 (currently only available in Finnish) >. The State Treasury is responsible for the travel protection scheme from 1 January 2018 onwards.

If you require an insurance certificate for your visa application, please contact the State Treasury at travel.claims [at] statetreasury.fi
