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.
