    Available Visas in Finland

    The Schengen states have jointly agreed which countries’ citizens are required to present a visa. Each Schengen state decides which passports and travel documents it accepts from different countries’ citizens.

    If your country of destination is Finland, apply for a visa from the nearest Finnish mission or the visa centre that the mission advises to you. Honorary consuls and consulates cannot grant visas.

    Even if you did not need a visa to visit Finland, you need a valid passport or some other travel document accepted by Finland. It must be valid for at least ninety days after your intended date of departure from the Schengen area.

    In addition, the passport or other travel document must have been issued no later than ten years ago.

    In case you do not need a visa, you can stay in Finland or in the territory of other Schengen state for ninety days in any 180-day period.

    Visa types

    Single-entry visa: This type of visa allows the holder to enter Finland once and stay for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.

    Double-entry visa: This type of visa allows entry into Finland twice and may be valid within the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.

    Multiple-entry visa.

    Airport transit visa.
