Arriving in Finland

Visa requirements and travel documents accepted by Finland

Finland is a Schengen member state. All Schengen member states have jointly agreed about the rules concerning the movement of third-country nationals in their territories and decided which countries’ citizens are required to present a visa. Furthermore, each Schengen state has decided which travel documents citizens of different third countries have to present upon entering the country. Further questions concerning visas or travel documents accepted by Finland can be addressed to the Finnish diplomatic consular missions or the Passport and Visa Unit of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.


The average temperature in Helsinki in late August ranges between 8 to 17°C (46 to 63°F) with 14 hours of sunlight. As August is also the wettest month of the year, coats and umbrella are reccommended.

About Helsinki

Compared to most major metropolises, the beat of Helsinki is laid-back and relaxed. Most of the city’s attractions and hot-spots are within walking distance from each other. The publisc transport system is comfortable and reliable and has been ranked among the best in Europe.

A third of Helsinki is covered in green areas. They offer great possibilities for outdoor activities and recreation, such as Central Park and numerous forests just outside the city center. The number of parks and waterside hangouts are ideal for a bit of downshifting in the heart of the city. On the other hand, scores of urban events, restaruants, bars, and nightclubs make Helsinki a vibrant capital with cultural offerings.
