I would like to travel from Moscow to New York via Helsinki.
My Russian passport expires less than 3 months after the planned departure from the US. To enter the US, my passport only needs to be valid at the time I leave the country, as Russia is in their exception list.
However, will I be allowed to transit through Helsinki?
I hold a valid USA visa and a German residence permit.
Typing all the details into Timatic (which as far as I know is used by airlines to check visa and COVID regulations for entry and boarding), notifies me that I am not eligible to board the plane from Moscow to Helsinki.
However, the Finnair website actually lists the exact connection as an example:
For example, if you are travelling from Moscow to New York via Helsinki, your travel documents must be valid for the USA.
This seems to contradict the previous info from Timatic. I was unable to reach Finnair directly to ask this, but would like to have clarification on this before I book a flight.
