Identity documents / Passport and Visa regulations
Before traveling to any of the Tallink Silja's destination, please check what travel documents are required for these countries.
AS Tallink Grupp and ports follow the ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code), which requires shipping companies and port authorities to make random checks of travel documents.
Passengers must prepare for security check in the terminals, where they are required to present their proof of identity, such as valid passport or official ID card with photo. The obligation to provide proof of identity applies to all passengers. Since 26 June 2012, children of any age need to have their own passport or ID card to travel (even if they are still mentioned in their parent’s passport, which remains valid).
The passengers are required to find out whether they need to apply for a visa. If a visa is required, passengers have to apply for the visa themselves. If the visa or other travel documents are not in order, and the authorities turn the passenger back at the border, the passenger is liable for subsequent expenses due to this.
