The Finnish Border Guard is responsible for the border control at Helsinki Airport. Border checks are carried out for passengers traveling outside the Schengen area and returning from there.

Border check for departing passengers is carried out after the security check. Arriving passengers go through the border control after arriving from the flight before leaving the gate area or before transferring to a connecting flight.

In addition to the traditional counters, the border control points at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport have also automated border control gates, using which you do not need to wait in lines and can quickly pass through the border.

At the border check, passenger's passport/identity card, boarding pass, possible visa and other required travel documents are generally checked.

You can find more information and tips for traveling and about the border checks on the Finnish Border Guard's website. 

For more detailed information about the required travel documents, please contact the destination country's embassy. You can also contact the representative office of the destination country in Finland.

On the website of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland you'll find information regarding the visa requirements when arriving to Finland.
