Fertility Clinics in Finland
Background Finland is one of Europe’s northernmost fertility tourist destinations. The few clinics that exist there are well-regarded and Finland follows European Union directive on the use of tissues and cells so is ethical and regulated in its practice. Treatment using donor eggs and sperm is similar to the UK in that all donors are anonymous but traceable, but the costs are cheaper.

Health & Safety You should get a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK. After 31 December 2020, your UK-issued EHIC might not be valid. The EHIC entitles you to state provided medical treatment that may become necessary during your trip. Any treatment provided is on the same terms as Finnish nationals. It is important to take out comprehensive travel insurance that includes cover for emergency medical treatment and associated costs. The existing EHIC arrangements are not an alternative to travel insurance, as some health-related costs, including for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment and non-urgent treatment, are not covered.
