If you have recently travelled in a malaria-risk area, please wait six months before donating blood after returning to Finland. Travelling elsewhere in the country results in a 28-day donation deferral period.

Malaria occurs in most parts of the country, but there is no risk of malaria in the very northernmost parts of the country near the Moroccan border (in the regions of Dakhlet Nouadhibou and Tiris Zemmour).
