The law, signed by the president, means that nightclubs may only be visited by vaccinated people in the capital region, Ostrobothnia and Southwest Finland.

The Finnish Infection Control Agency has also launched a monitoring app which the taverns can use to check their visitors' vaccine status using a QR code found on the vaccine passport.

The passport becomes valid seven days after a person has taken their second vaccine dose. A recent PCR test or a proven recovery from covid-19 also gives the right to a passport.

The requirement for a vaccine passport will take effect on Saturday night, according to Finnish authorities.
