Visa application grounds

All citizens of Iran need a visa when travelling to the Schengen area.

If you are legally and permanently residing in Iran you can apply for a visa at the VFS Global outsourcing centre. Foreign nationals residing in Iran have to present a valid work permit or residence permit of Iran.

 A visa is an entry permit that is granted for a short-term and temporary stay of up to 90 days in a 180-day period. Visa can be issued for single, double or multiple entries. A visa allows travel in all Schengen countries unless otherwise stated in the visa. You may move freely within the Schengen area during the validity of the visa. When the visa validity period ends you must leave the Schengen area.  Visa holders are not allowed to work in the Schengen area.

If the intended stay exceeds 90 days, a residence permit has to be applied. As a general rule a residence permit is needed for work and internships even for a short time.

Schengen countries are: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.

Obtaining a visa is not a subjective right. A visa decision is based on the application and the information provided in its appendices, and also on the issues that have come up in the possible interview. The Embassy deals with each visa application individually, and applications cannot be compared with each other. Visa can be issued according to the requested type and duration, shorter than requested duration with single, double,   multiple entries or the visa can be refused.

Information on the visa application and decision can be given only to the applicant. The applicant can authorize another person to represent him or her by giving the person a power of attorney in writing. In that case the authorized person can be given the same information as the applicant.

A negative decision is given in writing on the standard form specified in the Visa Code. In accordance with Finnish legislation, diplomatic missions or the Ministry for Foreign Affairs are not obligated to justify a visa decision to the visa applicant in any greater detail. If the visa application is refused, the applicant may file a rectification request concerning the decision. Instructions for filing a rectification request are found on the bottom of this page.

As soon as you receive your visa, make sure that all the information it contains is correct!

Arrival to the Schengen area

A visa is only one of the requirements of entry into the Schengen area.  The conditions of entry are re-evaluated at the border.
