Well, mostly people get confused about Schengen visa types. Recently, we observed that many people are trying to figure out if they can travel from Finland to Estonia and return to Finland with a single-entry Schengen visa or not. Well, this confusion is because of the unawareness about Schengen country policies and visa scope. Let us discuss the same.

Can you travel from Finland to Estonia and return to Finland with a single-entry Schengen visa ?

In this article, we are not going to explain to you the difference between a single-entry, double-entry, or multi-entry visa. You must have been aware of it.We are just going to mention a few important points that will help you get an answer to your questions.

  • There are 27 States (Countries) that come in the Schengen Visa regime
  • Estonia and Finland are both under Schengen Visa regime
  • As per the Schengen visa regime, there will be no passport or border control for anyone who has a valid Schengen visa, nationality, or other legal permits.
  • A multi- or double-entry visa gives you the right to enter and exit the Schengen area and come back. For example, if you are travelling from Singapore to Finland and again returning to Finland, then you should have a multi- or double-entry visa.
  • A single-entry visa gives you the right to enter only once from a non-Schengen country. For example, in the above case, if you are flying from Singapore to Finland and then come back to Singapore, you will have to get a visa again to enter any Schengen country.
  • When you are sailing on a cruise from Heslinki to Tallinn, you won’t end up meeting any border or passport control.
  • Also, if you are flying from Tallinn to Helsinki or vice versa, at the airport you won’t pass border control; however, they have all the rights to ask you for valid documents.
  • So, yes, you can travel from Helsnki, Finland, to Tallinn, Estonia, and come back to Finland on a single-entry Schengen visa without encountering passport or border control.
  • Let me say it in a different way: you do not need a multi-entry visa to travel to Tallinn, Estonia, from Helsinki, Finland, and return to Finland.A single-entry visa works.
  • Last but not least, there will be no stamping on your passports, even though you will travel from one country to another.Because they consider it Schengen states instead of countries.
