Hello, I want to make a complain, for bad service from 2 employees of your company. I asked 5 days ago to a male worker of your company, twice, if they make visas for albanian citizens, and both times he answered ´´yes´´. And i asked if everything i needed was just a life insurance, application form, 1 foto and invitation from my host, and again he answered ´´yes, that´s all we need´´. I took airplane to Italy to make insurance, because i couldnt find any company in finland to make insurance to foreign citizens. I spent money for the plane tickets and also for the train tickets. When i arrived back in Finland today, ready to apply for my visa, that same worker, told me that i needed a document that says that i can stay more than 90 days in Finland, a document i never had heard of, and added that he wouldn´t make me the visa. When i asked for the boss, a good-looking slim lady came over, but couldn´t speak much english, she also said that they weren´t going to give me visa. I lost money from the mistake that your employee made, and time. I hope you will take measures, and i am sure you take very seriously your jobs. In civilized countries, people who make mistakes, pay.
I´m sure you care for the image of your company, and for the image of your country, and won´t let irresponsible workers to destroy the good reputation your company already has.
If you want to talk to me to fix everything, please call me at 0465526414 or email me at
