Required documents

The documents you should send us are:

  1. An original passport which has to be valid for minimum 6 months after the expiration of the visa that you are applying for with 2 blank pages in it. Note! Damaged or passports that otherwise are not in a good condition will likely be rejected by the consulate.

  3. One passport photo (b/w or colour, size 3,5×4,5 cm) which is not older than 6 months.
  4. Travel insurance certificate in English. There must be information about the dates, insurance number, name as well as information that insurance covers medical expenses and repatriation. There must be also logo/stamp of insurance company along with name and contact details of the insurer. Please note that a copy of the insurance card or a copy of the insurance policy is not valid proof of insurance.

You can submit the necessary documents by mail or directly to our office located in the city center of Lahti on Hämeenkatu 15, on the 4th floor.

Please note that once you have left us your visa application, the contract is binding and the application can no longer be canceled.

The visa forms have been renewed starting 06.10.2010. There must be no corrections in the visa application. Markings in bold will be considered corrections. An incorrectly completed application will cause extra cost on the client for instance in the form of express fees.

The whole application must be completed with a ball point pen from start to finish. Ink and marker pens should not be used. A form completed by computer can be amended, if the corrections are made with a black pen.
