Finland’s visa system downtime 12–17 May

Due to the visa system update across the entire Schengen area, Finland’s missions abroad cannot receive visa applications between Friday 12 May at 14.00 and Wednesday 17 May at 8.00 (Finnish time). Furthermore, the missions cannot deliver visa decisions during that period of time.

The system updates do not affect the provision of services in Finland’s Visa Centres, which receive visa applications and issue visa decisions as usual within their regular office hours.
