People visiting Finland for a short period as tourists or for business need a visa
unless they come from a country to which the abolition of visas applies. A visa is an
entry permit to the country for short-term and temporary residence which lasts for
a maximum of three months.

Finland is one of the countries which have signed the Schengen Convention, and
the Schengen policies are applied in Finland regarding visas. The abolition of visas
is applied to citizens of all the EU member states, the citizens of the Scandinavian
countries and the citizens of countries on the list of visa-free states, providing they
possess other valid travel documents.

Depending on the purpose of use, the visa can be either a single-entry, multiple-
entry, re-entry, transit or airport transit visa. The main travel destination
determines where to apply for a visa. If the main travel destination in the
Schengen area is Finland, the visa is applied for at a Finnish diplomatic mission
abroad.
