Visa-Service | Lähialuematkat


Lähialuematkat will provide you a visa to all corners of the world, to whichever country you decide to travel. The easiest way to order visa is to use our online service called SoloVisa. You can place an order in English or Finnish. 

To get started, just click on the country of destination and follow the SoloVisa instructions. You will be given detailed information about the visa requirements, prices and list of documents needed for a type of visa you are about to order. You will be able to send messages and visa documents via SoloVisa, such as a photo or a travel insurance certificate. Consulates require certain visa documents traditionally, so you have to bring or deliver them for us.Those include such as a passport and a signed visa application form. You will choose the document delivery option while placing an order.

You can easily follow your visa process online, and we will keep you posted as well. You will get 3 messages from us. The last one will tell your visa is ready for delivery according to the option you have chosen. 

In case you prefer making your visa order in a traditional way, you are always welcome to visit our office:

Lähialuematkat, Vuorimiehenkatu 3, 00140 Helsinki, open Mon – Fri 9 – 17

Lähialuematkat, Helsinki Central Railway station office, open Mon – Fri 10 – 18 (next to VR ticket sales office)
