Visa to Finland

A Finland's visa is a document that allows its holder to enter Finland and reside for some time in the country.

Finland has the following 8 types of visa:

  • Airport transit visa
  • Tourist/visitor visa
  • Business visa
  • Medical treatment visa
  • Cultural, sports, film or religious purpose visa
  • Official visa
  • Stydu, training, research and internship visa
  • Family visit visa

It must be noted that some of these visa sub-types can be included into a broader category, and they are different in the sense that they require different documents to apply for.


Depending on your chosen visa type, the processing fees may range from 35 to 60 EUR. Please not that this may be subject to change due to individual circumstances.
