Dear friends of the South African Embassy
During the week of 26 April -4 May (27 April is a South African Public Holiday) the Embassy will engage in Closed Blind Auction of some items.
Due to the COVID-19 regulations the Embassy can only allow a limited number of members from the public to come and view these items at a time.
Should you be interested in participating in this auction, please contact Ms Tepa Rocklin at
e-mail: [email protected]
to register your interest and request time allocation to visit the Embassy to view and bid on the available items for Auction.

Dear friends of South Africa

The Embassy of the Republic of South Africa in Helsinki regrets to inform you that due to financial constraints, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the South African Government had to make the very difficult decision to close some of its Embassies abroad. Regrettably, the Embassy of South Africa in Helsinki has been identified as one of those to be closed.

It is anticipated that after 30 June 2021, all matters pertaining to South Africa's bilateral relationship with the Republics of Finland and Estonia will be conducted on a non-residential basis by the South African Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden.

As a result of this situation, the Embassy is also earmarked to cease rendering Civic and Consular Services leading up to the formal closure.

Citizens are advised to start applying for passports and other South African citizen documents from the South African Embassy in Stockholm with immediate effect.

All pending documents already applied for and not yet received may need to be collected from the Embassy in Stockholm. This Embassy will continue to be available for Emergency Consular Assistance, Commissioner of Oath, Certification and other limited services until 28 May 2021.

The last Visa and Permit applications will be accepted on 24 May 2021.

All pending applications and citizen contact databases will be transferred to the Embassy in Stockholm.

The Embassy of the Republic of South Africa in Helsinki deeply regrets this turn of events, and wishes to reiterate that the Government of the Republic of South Africa continues to attach great importance to its bilateral partnership and friendship with the Governments and people of Finland and Estonia. The Embassy of South Africa in Stockholm, Sweden will continue to represent South Africa's interests and work on the strengthening of our bilateral relations in future.

To all the South African citizens, our partners and friends that have so actively supported this Embassy's programmes and events over the past 30 years, we wish to express our sincerest appreciation and wish that you will continue to engage with the Embassy in Sweden in a similar manner.
