Finland issues visas to Russians more often than other countries

According to the European Commission, in 2019 Finland issued 782,000 visas to citizens of the Russian Federation. The absolute majority (97%) of them are multi-year visas, as the percentage of refusals is one of the smallest in EU (0.7%).

According to the website Visadio.com, the majority of applications for a Finnish visa to Schengen were submitted in St. Petersburg — almost 645,000 visas. Moscow is in second place — 76,000. Moreover, the Moscow consulate of Finland refuses Russians in a visa more often than the St. Petersburg one: 1.6% of refusals against 0.3%.

Finland is the most popular Schengen country for Russians, but the Finns themselves do not travel to Russia very often. Among the leaders, in terms of the number of tourists, are other European countries: for example, Germany, France, Italy.
