Conference and Study


Applicants who are travelling to Finland for conference, scientific research, study and training purposes.

All citizens of Indonesia are required to apply for a visa before entering Finland and/or other countries under the Schengen agreement.

Before applying, please ensure you understand your particular ‘purpose of visit’. Schengen visas must be applied for at the respective Embassy of the country of your main destination. Your main destination will be the Schengen country where your duration of stay exceeds all others. Due to this, when traveling to more than one Schengen country, you should submit your application to the Embassy representing the country of your main destination. In case of equal stay, one has to submit their application to the mission of the Schengen country representing their first port of entry.

Finland Visa Application Centre in Indonesia accepts applications for short stay visas only. A passport should be valid for at least three (3) months beyond the intended stay in Finland and there should be at least two (2) empty pages available in the passport.
