Contact the embassy in advance for applying a residence permit
Please kindly make an appointment with the Embassy when applying for a residence permit to Finland, tel. + 48 22 598 9500.
Citizens of Poland, like other EU-citizens, do not need visa for travelling to Finland.
In connection with the Schengen-agreement the Embassy only grants visas in exceptional cases.
Finland joined the Schengen agreement on March 25, 2001.
A visa issued by one Schengen State entitles its holder to travel and stay in territories of all Schengen States. Nationals of a country subject to a visa requirement must have a visa when travelling to the territory of Schengen States. If a traveller has a residence permit issued by one of the Schengen States, he or she does not need a visa while travelling in the Schengen territory.
Citizens of Poland, like other EU-citizens, can stay in Finland for a period of three months without applying for a residence permit. As of 1 January 2017, register your right of residence at a service point of the Finnish Immigration Service. More information available at the website of the Finnish Immigration Service.
Other foreigners, who stay in Finland longer than three months (for work or study), must apply for a residence permit through the Embassy of Finland before arrival in Finland.
