How to Apply for a Finland Schengen Visa from the UK

How to Apply for a Finland Schengen Visa from the UK

From the vibrant art-filled cities of Helsinki and Turku to the depths of the boreal forests and the thinly-inhabited outer archipelago, Finland remains a relatively unknown corner of Europe. This is likely because it is so far from the mainstream tourist routes, but the country's many cultural and historical attractions add to the unspoiled natural surroundings to make it an ideal destination.

A number of hallmarks of this colourful past remain scattered throughout the country, in the form of captivating ruins, meandering cobblestone streets, and towering fortresses. Its lakes, fells, rivers, and vast wild areas, along with the certainty of snow in the winter make it a Nordic playground for both winter and summer activities.

Finland Entry Restrictions in Response to Coronavirus

In early 2020, Finland joined its Schengen country neighbours in closing its borders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The country has since re-opened its borders to allow essential travel for most countries, but with restrictions that depend on your country of residence and country of origin.

However, Finland is now in the technical testing phase to connect to the EU Digital COVID Certificate gateway that will allow travellers into the EU. The EU plans to start letting travellers inside their borders in time for summer travel.

Finland's border restrictions change frequently, depending on the current circumstances, so it's important to keep updated from trusted news sources, the UK government website, or the Finnish Border Guard website so that you are up to date on the latest news.

Transiting Finland

There are no Finnish restrictions on cross-border traffic with other states in the Schengen area for commuter and other essential traffic. Restrictions for other travellers remain in place. See the Finnish Border Guard website for more information.

Passengers are allowed to transit through Helsinki Airport as long as they can verify acceptance at their final destination. Finavia strongly recommends that passengers use facemasks as they travel around airports in Finland, and Finnair have made the wearing of facemasks mandatory for passengers aged 7 or over on their flights. Please check your carrier’s requirements before travelling.

Who needs a visa to travel to Finland from the UK?

Finland is a Schengen country, which means that travellers from 26 EU and EFTA states (Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland) have freedom of movement within the area, and a uniform Schengen visa issued by any one of the Schengen states is valid for travel within the whole Schengen area. You can apply for a Finland Schengen visa at the Finland Visa Application Centres in London, Manchester or Edinburgh.

If you are a UK citizen, remember that the rules on travel to Europe and the Schengen Area have now changed due to Brexit.

Finland Visas Post-Brexit for UK Citizens

The rules for travelling or working in Europe will change from 1 January 2021:
  • You will be able to travel to countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa for purposes such as tourism, visiting family or friends, attending business meetings and cultural or sports events, or for short-term studies or training. This is a rolling 180-day period and does not reset once you leave the Schengen Area. You can find out more about the 90/180 rule and the consequences of overstaying in the Schengen zone in our blog post: Overstaying in the Schengen Zone
  • If you’re travelling to Finland, it’s important to know that your previous visits to the Schengen area within the 180 days before your date of travel will count against the 90-day limit.
  • If you are travelling visa-free to Finland and to other countries in the Schengen area, make sure your whole visit is within the limit or you will be considered as overstaying in the Schengen Area and may face the consequences for doing so.
  • To stay for longer, to work or study, or for business travel, you will need to meet the entry requirements set out by Finland. This could mean applying for a visa or work permit. Check with the Embassy of Finland to know what type of Schengen visa, if any, you will need for your stay.
  • Periods of stay authorised under a visa or permit will not count against the 90-day limit.

Find out other things that changed during the Brexit transition in our article: Brexit Reminder: Things that will change in 2021.

At border control for Finland, you may need to:

  • show a return or onward ticket
  • show you have enough money for your stay
  • use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing

Your passport may also be stamped on entry and exit.

Note: You can stay in the UK until the decision about the extension is taken, but only if you have applied within the visa period.

Steps to Applying for a Finnish Schengen Visa from the UK

Step 1: Know your visa type and validity

To apply for a Schengen visa to Finland in the UK, you first need to know the type of visa you require and how long the visa will be valid. There are 2 types of visa that you can apply for and the one you need will depend on the duration of your trip and your reason for travelling to Finland:

  1. Short-stay (Schengen) Visa – valid for up to 90 days (in a 180-day period) for the purposes of tourism, business, visiting family/friends, conference, EEA/EU national family member
  2. Residence and work permits (Long stays) – you should apply for this kind of visa if you want to live in Finland for more than 90 days for employment, family reunification, study, research etc.

You will then be issued either a single entry, double-entry, or multiple-entry visa for up to 5 years based on the information you provide in your visa application.

It is important to choose the correct Schengen visa type to apply for depending on your trip so that you have the best chance of having your application approved. Find out more about the different types of Schengen visas in our blog post: Schengen Visa Types – All You Should Know When Applying for a Schengen Visa.

Schengen Visa Types According to Validity

a) Uniform Schengen Visas (USV)

Uniform Schengen Visa allows the holder to transit or stay in the desired Schengen state for the duration of up to a maximum of 90 days every 180 days starting from the date of entry.

USV's apply to three different categories:

Category “A” (Airport Transit Visa) — this visa allows for the holder to wait for a connecting flight from one non-Schengen country to another through a Schengen country airport. The holder is however only restricted to the airport and cannot leave, even if they desire to stay at a hotel outside the airport.

Category “B” (Transit Visa) — this visa type allows holders to travel through multiple Schengen countries to a non-Schengen country by car, coach, or plane, as long as travel lasts no more than 5 days. This visa type would be helpful if you desire to stay at a hotel that is outside the airport before taking a connecting flight.

Category “C” (Short-term Visa) — this is the most popular Schengen Visa. It allows its holder to visit and stay in a Schengen Area for a certain period of time depending on the visa validity. It is primarily issued for tourism, visiting family and friends, business and other authorized purposes. It can be provided for single entry, double-entry, or multiple entries, depending on the purpose of your travel.

  • Single-Entry Visa – A single-entry visa allows its holder to enter the Schengen Area only once, within the given period of time, as indicated in the visa sticker stamped to their passport. Once the visa holder exits the Schengen territory, the holder cannot go back without getting a new visa; no matter how short the duration the he/she spent in the Schengen area.
  • Double-entry visa – A double-entry visa allows the holder to enter the Schengen area twice. This is very handy especially when you are travelling to a Schengen country, and then visit a non-Schengen area and back to a Schengen area to conclude your trip. Once the visa holder exits the Schengen territory for the second time, he or she can no longer go back without getting a new visa; even if you have not spent all of the days you were permitted to remain there.
  • Multiple-entry visa – A multiple-entry visa allows the holder to go in and out of the Schengen Area multiple times for up to 90 days at a time at any given 180 days period.

Several factors the consulate will consider in order to give a multiple-entry visa include;

  • The need/justification to travel to the Schengen country frequently
  • Your financial status in your country of residence
  • Whether you have adhered to leaving in time during your previous visits.
  • Your authentic intention to leave the Schengen Area after your time is up.

Depending on how frequently you travel to the Schengen zone, you may apply and obtain one of the following multiple-entry visa types:

  • 1-year multiple-entry visa – This visa allows its holder to enter the Schengen Zone multiple times, as long as they do not stay more than 3 months within this period.
  • 3-year multiple-entry visa – This visa gives you the right to enter the Schengen zone multiple times within a period of three years. However, even in this case, you are only allowed to reside in the Schengen area no longer than 90 days within a 180-day period.
  • 5-year multiple-entry visa – This visa allows its holder to enter 26 countries in the Schengen region as many times as they wish, within five years, as long they do not stay for more than 90 days within a 180-day period.

b) Limited territorial validity visas (LTV)

Limited Territorial Validity (LTV) Visas permit you to travel only in the Schengen country that issued the visa or in special cases, travel in Schengen States specifically mentioned when applying for the visa. This visa is invalid in any other Schengen area that is not specified prior. This visa is usually issued in peculiar cases that fall out of the Uniform Schengen Visa (USV) category such as humanitarian reasons, international obligations or in cases of some sort of emergency.

c) National Visa

The national visa (category “D”) is granted to individuals who plan on studying, working, or residing permanently in one of the Schengen countries. The national visa can either be:

  • Single-entry – allowing you to reside, work or study in the Schengen country for a certain period of time with the assurance that after which they shall return to their country, or
  • Multiple-entry – allowing you to travel in and out of this Schengen country multiple times and also travel to other Schengen Areas without having to apply for a new visa.

Schengen Visa Types According to Purpose of Travel

On the visa application form, you will be prompted to indicate the purpose of your travel to the Schengen territory. Here are some purposes to help you apply for the correct visa:

  • Tourism – This is the most popular purpose of travel to Schengen Countries. Applicants, who intend to travel purely for tourist purposes, i.e. sightseeing, leisure, and experiencing their culture, architecture, foods, and much more, need to indicate this on the application form.
  • Business – If you intend to travel for business purposes, i.e. visiting a business/company for meetings, recruitments, training, or any other work-related activities, then you need to indicate Business the purpose of your travels. Every Business visa application has to be confirmed by an invitation letter from a business/company based in Finland, if not, you will be required to apply as a Tourist.
  • Airport Transit – Certain nationalities have to apply for an airport transit visa in order to be allowed to make a stopover at an airport in a Schengen Area, without entering the Schengen Country. You need to indicate airport transit as the purpose of travel on your application form.
  • Transit – This is similar to the above-mentioned purpose of travel, popular among sea travellers that need to stop over at the seaport of one of the member states.
  • Visiting Family or Friends – If you need to visit and stay with your family or friends that legally reside in the Schengen Area, you can then indicate this as your purpose of travel. You’ll, however, be required to provide a letter of invitation among other documents.
  • Study – Students wishing to attend any type of educational institution in the Schengen area need to indicate this on their application. They can either choose to apply for a short term 3-month Schengen study visa or National Visa (category “D”) if they plan on being in the country longer.
  • Medical – Indicate this as your purpose of travel if you are travelling to any of the member states of the Schengen territory to seek medical treatment. This visa will allow you to get the medical care you need at any medical institution for a period of 90 days within a 180-period.
  • Official Visit – Tick this as your purpose of travel if you are travelling to the Schengen region in an official capacity.
  • Cultural, Sports, and Film Crews – this visa is for people wishing to travel to a Schengen member country for the purpose of attending a cultural / sports / religious event or they are part of a film crew. The applicant should be part of the event, i.e. a performer at a concert, or a writer presenting their book at a book event, or an athlete participating in a sports event and not only as a mere audience.
  • Other – If the purpose of your travel does not fall under any of the mentioned categories, you’ll have to choose the “other” option on the application form. You will, however, be required to specify the purpose of your visit in a few words.

Step 2: Identify where to make the application and book an appointment

To apply for a Finland visa, you must book an appointment with the Finland Embassy in London. You can do this through VFS Global.

You should apply for a Finland visa at the appropriate Finland Embassy/Consulate or Finland visa application centre in the UK if:

  • Finland is the only Schengen country you plan on visiting
  • Finland is your main destination (the country you will be staying the longest in)
  • Finland is the first Schengen country you are visiting (when spending an equal amount of days in Finland and another Schengen country)

In case you plan on staying in Finland for more than 90 days you must apply for a residency permit, not a Finland Schengen visa.

If you are not a resident in the United Kingdom, you should apply for your visa at the Finland Embassy/Consulate/VAC in your home country of residence. You can apply for your Finland visa from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the USA, and elsewhere.

Step 3: Complete your application form

The Schengen Visa application form contains questions about you including:

  • Name and surname
  • Date and place of birth
  • Nationality
  • Sex and marital status
  • National Identity number
  • Passport number
  • Home address and email
  • Purpose of trip
  • Question regarding previous trips to Schengen, if any
  • Intended date of arrival in Schengen area you are visiting, and the intended period of stay
  • Cost of traveling and remaining in Schengen area you are visiting, who will cover them, etc.
