- Finland introduced new entry measures for foreign nationals holding a long-stay D Visa issued by a consulate or embassy office of Finland
The government of Finland announced plans to expedite entry measures for students, researchers, and people in managerial roles. The government will issue a long-stay D Visa sticker by the nearest Finnish diplomatic mission once eligible applicants have received an approval notice for a residence permit. The applicant will then be permitted to travel to Finland with the D Visa sticker serving as entry permissions. As a result, the foreign national can begin working while the residence permit card is being delivered.
