Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine/Codeine/Morphine: possible

Foreign methadone/buprenorphine patients are allowed to bring their own supply of medication needed for personal use for the duration of stay on condition that they carry a certificate from their home physician or clinic (including quantity of methadone/buprenorphine, daily dosage, dates of arrival in and departure from Finland) which clearly supports their need for the medication. It should be noted that residents from one of the EU signatory
countries of the “Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75
must carry with them a “Certification to carry drugs and/or other psychotropic substances for treatment purposes – Schengen Implementing Convention, Article 75” form when travelling to Finland, provided such forms are available in the corresponding countries.
