Finnish citizens are recommended to check the US Visa policy to confirm which documentation they need before traveling to the United States. Finnish passport holders planning a brief visit to the United States are exempt from a visa. They are eligible to go straight to the ESTA application and obtain an online entry permit.
However, Finnish nationals who currently hold a previously granted visa for the United States do not need the US ESTA and can enter using their current documentation.
The US ESTA is valid for 2 years from the date of issue and allows the holder multiple entries to stay in the United States, for a maximum of 90 days with each entry. It grants entry for Finnish nationals arriving for tourism, business, and transit.
Finnish nationals looking to visit the United States for a longer period of stay or other purposes, such as full-time job-seeking opportunities or long-term studies, must schedule an appointment at the United States embassy in Helsinki for further details.
