The UK has a perfectly nice Helsinki embassy, so this isn't an issue of remote location. It's a great location, but British posts abroad require an authorised 'visa section' before they can issue visas and the embassy in Finland does not have one. This is the standard case for all British missions in the Scandinavian region. Is Finland an exceptional ...

Yes, there's a 'rest area' of sorts if you can get airside, according to sleepinginairports, and the airport is open 24 hours. Nothing great though, unless you pay - there are hotels available.

This answer assumes that you are a national of a country whose citizens require a visa to enter the ...

Although the benches had no armrest, thus allowing me to lie down properly, they were made of metal and were padded by some feeble cushioning. Moreover the place can get quite noisy at various points during the ...

Copenhagen is in Denmark, and Helsinki in Finland. For border purposes, Denmark and Finland are actually in the same "Country", called the Schengen Area (or Schengen for short).
