Courier return of decision envelopes to your location of choice
Keeping in mind the health and safety of all our customers and employees in view of the ongoing COVID-19 physical distancing guidelines, decision envelopes will be returned back only by courier till further notice for all Finland residence permit customers, effective 09 November 2020.
Finland residence permit customers cannot visit the Residence permit Application Centre to pick up their decision envelope once it is ready for collection – the decision envelope will be directly couriered to their location of choice (the location must be serviceable by our courier partner). The fee for this is Euro 6 (equivalent to INR 518/- ), irrespective of the delivery location.
The courier service has been established to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus amongst our customers and employees. It is expected to be in place until the risk perception of COVID-19 is significantly reduced.
Other health and safety measures being undertaken at our Application Centres include: no-contact screening at entry, sanitization, use of face-masks inside the centre according to guidelines of local authorities, and physical distancing measures for customers throughout the residence permit application process.
We will post an update on this page as and when the process is reviewed and changed. Thank you for your understanding.
