Who needs a visa to Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway and/or Sweden?

 

Hongkong SAR, Macao SAR and BN(O) passport holders do not need a visa to enter Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden or other Schengen countries. For a longer stay in Finland, a residence permit is required. The authority with the decision making power over residence permits in Finland is the Finnish Immigration Service.  The Consulate General of Finland in Hong Kong accepts only residence permit applications to Finland. The work- and residence permits of other countries are processed at their respective missions.

If a person from a country with a visa requirement has a visa issued by a Schengen country, they do not require an additional visa to move from one Schengen country to another.
