Finnish government

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Undvik alla resor - Det säkerhetspolitiska läget kan förändras plötsligt och i oförutsebar riktning. Följ myndigheternas anvisningar och nyhetsrapporteringen i medierna. Undvik stora folksamlingar och demonstrationer. Det kan också förekomma störningar i mobil- och datanätet under val och andra evenemang. I september 2022 satte en proteströrelse igång efter att en ung kvinna som anhållits av den så kallade sedlighetspolisen avled. De samhälleliga oroligheterna fortsätter. Myndigheternas beslut att begränsa tillgången till sociala medier och internet ökar osäkerheten och ovetskapen samt försvårar kontakten till omvärlden. Läget håller på att leda till nya sanktioner mot Iran och internationella ställningstaganden om de mänskliga rättigheterna och medborgarfriheten i Iran. Det är väldigt svårt att få en tillförlitlig lägesbild. Den tillspetsade situationen kan också leda till ökad utlänningsfientlighet i Iran. Risken för godtyckliga anhållningar av utlänningar har ökat. Iran erkänner inte dubbelt medborgarskap och det kan vara svårt eller rentav omöjligt för ambassaden att hjälpa personer med dubbelt medborgarskap.

Danger level: 5

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
