Update on Visa Services (November 30, 2020)
November 30, 2020

In accordance with Department of State and Government of Finland health guidelines, the embassy’s consular section is operating at reduced capacity due to Covid-19 precautions and restrictions. The consular section anticipates demand for consular services during the winter holiday period will far exceed available resources.  As a result, we will continue to provide a reduced level of nonimmigrant visa services, and we cannot guarantee a particular appointment date. In particular, visa holders currently in the United States who may be planning travel to Finland should expect any return travel to the United States to be subject to potentially lengthy delay.
