Where to apply for a visa

Due to the coronavirus situation, only the following categories can submit the visa application:

  • on the basis of an established relationship
  • on the basis of family ties
  • on the basis of the seasonal work
  • other justified reasons, i.e. funeral

Visa applications by travellers to Finland are received by the Visa Application Centre of VFS Global, partner of the Embassy of Finland, by appointment only. 

You can make an appointment through the website of the Visa Application Centre or by contacting their telephone service. The Visa Application Centre serves their customers in English and in Thai. You will find the opening hours and exact location of the Visa Application Centre here.
