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 some parts of the country, but there is no malaria risk, for example, in Panama City, the regions by the Panama Canal or Santa Clara.
