Please be well aware of the location that you would like to submit your application. In case of no-shows at the appointment with the Embassy, the Embassy will not accept the application at a later time or date.
We recommend that you take an appointment to visit the Visa Application Centre, as it will reduce your waiting time.

You can also schedule an appointment for submitting documents by calling to the call Centre: +216 70 14 57 56 from Monday to Friday 09:00 – 15:00 (except Embassy holidays). We recommend that you take an appointment to visit the Visa Application Centre as it will reduce your waiting time.
Note: One appointment is valid for one applicant only. The only exception is for children under 12 years of age who may submit their application together with their parent(s) appointment. In case you arrive in a group, kindly book the required number of appointments corresponding to the number of applicants. If the parents have appointments in different slots they can submit their applications as a family in the same slot together with their child. We recommend verifying the check-list of supporting documents in advance and completing an online application form carefully, pasting the photograph and making copies of supplementary documents (e.g. ‘parents’ consent for the child to travel and child’s birth certificate).

Information for the Libyan visa applicants
At the moment Finland does not have visa representation in Libya. Embassy of Finland in Tunis can receive only individual cases.
Libyan citizens who have an official invitation from the Finnish government or from another Finnish authority for an official trip to Finland can lodge the visa application at the Embassy of Finland.
Visa is meant for a short-term visit of maximum of 90 days in the Schengen area with return condition.
If necessary, the applicants are asked to give a written clarification by email about the former Schengen-visa history and about the matters supporting the fact that the applicant will return to Libya, and this before travelling to Tunisia in order to avoid unnecessary travel expenses.
Finland does not represent other member states in visa-matters of Libyan citizens.
