No need to visit a service point or a Finnish embassy or consulate.

In some cases, you do not need to visit a service point or an embassy or consulate to prove your identity if:

  • you log in to Enter Finland using strong identification, meaning that your identity is verified online;
  • you apply for an extended permit.

However, this is not possible in all situations when you apply for an extended permit. When you apply online, Enter Finland will show you whether a personal visit is needed or not.
