Citizens of Nordic countries (Denmark, Iceland, Sweden and Norway) do not need a passport for entering Finland. EU-nationals and citizens of Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland and Schengen Agreement countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden) can enter Finland with a valid passport or a valid identity card. All other nationalities require a valid passport.

If you are from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or the USA you do not require a visa for entry into Finland.

Please note that any travelers planning a trip across the border to Russia must have a visa. It is advisable to get it at the Embassy of Russia in the traveler’s country of origin, because it takes at least eight weekdays to obtain a visa in Helsinki.

As visa requirements can change we recommend you check the nearest Finish Embassy near you for the latest and up-to-date information on visas.
