Starting September 1, all supporting documents for the trip will be requested from Russian citizens when applying for a Schengen visa.
The Finnish Embassy expressed the hope that, despite the tightening of the rules for applying for visas to the country, the number of citizens of the Russian Federation who want to draw up a document will not decrease.
“ It is too early to say, but we, of course, hope that the number of Russians who fill out the Schengen in Finland will not decrease, ” the press service of the diplomatic mission reports to RBC .
Recall, it was previously reported that from September 1, Finland will toughen the process of obtaining a Schengen visa for Russians. Russians will have to provide documents that confirm their financial viability, place of residence, and travel tickets.
