Finland “significantly limited” the issuance of multi-visas to Russians

Consular offices of Finland have significantly limited the issuance of multiple-entry visas to Russians, said Jussi Tanner, head of the consular service of the Foreign Ministry.

As Tanner said on September 12, Finland tightened the issuance of tourist “Schengen” to Russians a few weeks ago, and the effect is already noticeable.

“We have already significantly limited the issuance of multiple-entry visas,” said the head of the consular service of the Foreign Ministry.

According to her, the Russians still have 100,000 valid visas in their hands, but their term is gradually expiring. And the multiple-entry visa policy could be revised in line with a new EU recommendation.
