Visas and residence permits

Finland has outsourced the collection of the biometric data required for visas and  work and student based residence permit applications to VFS Global. It is mandatory to schedule an appointment, which can be done through the appointment scheduling service available at visas and  residence permits. The Consulates General in New York and Los Angeles accept other residence permit applications.  An appointment for such application will need to be scheduled through our electronic appointment scheduling service.
