Before You Apply

Please read the information on this site carefully. The Visa Application Centre provides you with general information on how to apply for a Schengen visa to Finland. The guidelines are there to help you prepare your documents as accurately as possible. This will reduce the risk of your application being incomplete or taking a longer time to being processed.

The visa category chosen by the applicant must be based on the purpose of travel to Finland and the decision must be made by the applicant him/herself – Visa Application Centre staff will not be able to assist you in making this decision.
