The Embassy of Finland in Canberra is the official representative of Finland in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. As it is the only Finnish Embassy in the Southern Pacific region (Oceania), in practice the Embassy also represents Finland in its relations with Nauru, Tuvalu, the Cook Islands, Niue and Tokelau.
Australian and New Zealand citizens do not need a visa to Finland provided that their stay does not exceed 90 days during any 180-day period.

The Finnish Embassy building, the Ilmarinen, was officially opened in February 2002. It still attracts wide interest around Australia and has been praised as an architectural masterpiece. The building symbolises modern day Finland: its openness, high technology and love of nature.
The Embassy of Finland is approximately five kilometres south of the city centre.
