If you are fined for parking in the wrong place, pay the receipt at one of the banks in Finland. This can be done in any city. You cannot pay this type of fine in Russia. If you were fined on the eve of leaving the country, return to Finland within two weeks or ask to pay the receipt of your Finnish friends. If you ignore the fine, you will be in trouble in the future.

Step 5

Go to the nearest branch of any bank in Finland and present your receipt. Banks are open from 10:00 to 15:00 from Monday to Friday. The commission will be no more than 5% of the fine.

Customs payment is made according to the following details: Account number: 166030-102304 Bank: NORDEA BANK FINLAND PLC Bank address: Aleksanterinkatu 36FI-00020 NORDEAFINLAND Recipient: Tullilaitos (customs) Beneficiary's address: PL 51200101 Helsinki Codes for transfer: SWIFHT: NORDEA26103 transfer target: enter the receipt number. In case of loss, call the following phone number from Russia: +358 20 690 600

Step 8

Please note that all parking in Finland is free on Sundays. However, this does not mean that you can throw the car anywhere. If you park in the wrong place, be prepared for the fact that a package with a receipt for payment of the fine will be waiting for you on the windshield.

Step 9

Do not forget that non-compliance with traffic rules, an unpaid fine or other violation recorded by the Finnish police will become a serious obstacle to obtaining a Schengen visa. Driving while intoxicated is considered a criminal offense. Persons driving a car while intoxicated will be permanently blocked from entering Finland. Take into account the fact that in 2010 a unified database of all violations was created on the territory of the EU. Accordingly, if you break the law in Finland, any Schengen country may refuse to issue you a visa.
