Passport and Visa regulations

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.

Youth groups

We advise the whole group to aquaint themselves with the regulations for youth groups in already in advance when planning the voyage.

A youth group consists of a group leader or several leaders and the youths themselves. The group leader is responsible for making the reservation either with a travel agent or Silja Line's conference and group sales department. When making a reservation, the group leader should mention the group is a youth group since there amout of youth groups is limited. Silja Line confirms the booking after receiving the contact information of all leaders travelling with a given group (name, address, telephone number).

Group leaders area cabin of the same cabin class as their group. When making the reservation, the group leader is given the requisite number of Silja's general rules for group leaders. A copy is to be given to each group leader.

As a rule, group leaders should be at least 25 years of age and know the members of their group (at most 10 names of youngsters per group leader).

The group should arrive at the terminal one hour before departure. The group leader is responsible for taking care of the check-in procedures for the group and ensuring that the cabin numbers are entered on the group member lists. Group leaders board the ship together with their group and give the original group leader form to the security staff who inspect the boarding cards. The security staff may also ask the group members to provide proof of identity at the same time. Each group member is to carry valid proof of identity. Passports are required for certain destinations.

The group leaders' responsibilities include the following:

  • Ensure that the group does not make a noise or otherwise disturb their fellow passengers.
  • Ensure that the youngsters do not have alcoholic beverages with them.
  • Assist the ship's crew in disciplinary or other situations, following the crew's instructions.
  • The group leader and other group members are liable for any expenses due to and/or measures needed in the case of unwarrantable behaviour or vandalism towards other passengers, Silja Line or its property.

To use the wireless internet on board our vessels you have to insert a valid boarding card number. This is the last 8 digits number below the barcode on the boarding card. You can connect up to three devices with one boarding card.You have to insert the boarding card number only once per device, if you are prompted to log in again then simply press the log in button. You do not need to insert the code again if you have connected your device once. The boarding card number will start working two hours before departure and stop working two hours after arrival.

In this case, Tallink Silja Oy will be fully responsible for the proper performance of the package as a whole and has, as required by law, protection in place to refund the travellers’ payments and, where transport is included in the package, to ensure the travellers’ repatriation in the event that the ferry company becomes insolvent.

Travellers may contact this entity or, where applicable, the competent
authority if services are denied because of Tallink Silja Oy's insolvency.
2.3. Travel documents and travel insurance 
The ferry company must provide the traveller with general information about the travel documents of the destination country prior to concluding the contract. The traveller is responsible for observing the ferry company’s instructions and ensuring that they have the necessary documents for their trip (e.g. passport, personal identity card, visa, travel permits) and that these documents and tickets are correct and match each other. The traveller is also responsible for checking transport timetables. As long as the ferry company has provided all the necessary information, it cannot be held liable for any loss incurred by the traveller if the traveller is unable to participate in all or part of the trip due to inadequate travel documents. The ferry company cannot be held liable for any voluntary insurance that the traveller may need for the trip. Instead, the traveller is responsible for obtaining insurance themself and for ensuring that it covers what is needed in the event of cancellations, for example. To this end, the ferry company shall instruct the traveller to obtain sufficient insurance to cover accidents and property damage as well as cancellations.  
2.4. Potential safety risks at the destination 
The ferry company must inform the traveller of any special risks relating to the trip and the general health regulations in force in the destination country prior to the trip. The traveller is responsible for obtaining any advice specific to their personal health concerns themself. The traveller must be provided with instructions in the event of an illness, an accident or another similar event. 
The safety of the traveller while abroad is primarily the responsibility of the traveller themself and the authorities of the country in question. The traveller must take local conditions into consideration in their actions.
Key information about the safety and other characteristics of specific travel destinations is available on the websites of the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the National Institute for Health and Welfare at www.um.fi and www.thl.fi. The traveller must read the information in order to familiarise themself with local conditions at the destination.   
2.5. The ferry company’s obligation to provide assistance
If the traveller falls ill, has an accident, becomes a victim of a crime or suffers other losses during the trip, the ferry company will provide the traveller with information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance, help the traveller to make alternative travel arrangements and provide other necessary assistance without undue delay. If the traveller needs assistance during the trip, they must contact the ferry’s info desk, the hotel’s reception or the ferry company’s customer service points https://www.tallinksilja.fi/palvelunumerot. The traveller will bear the costs of these and any other special arrangements required by the circumstances (such as new transport, nights in a hotel) that the ferry company makes to accommodate the traveller’s situation. If a situation such as that referred to in Section 10.1.c. arises during a trip, the ferry company must provide the traveller with appropriate assistance and take any reasonable steps to limit the traveller’s losses and inconvenience. The ferry company has the right to charge a reasonable fee for any such assistance provided if the traveller has caused the situation intentionally or through negligence. However, the fee must not exceed the actual costs incurred by the ferry company from providing the assistance.
2.6. The traveller’s responsibilities 
2.6.1. The traveller must observe any instructions and orders regarding the execution of the trip given by the authorities, the ferry company or the ferry company’s representatives, read the AS Tallink Grupp Standard Conditions of Carriage at https://www.tallinksilja.com/terms-of-transport and Passenger Security Regulations at https://www.tallinksilja.com/good-to-know#16661470 and comply with the house rules of hotels and subcontractors. 
The traveller is liable for any damage they cause intentionally or through negligence to the ferry company or third parties, for example, by violating the provisions of Section 2.6.1.
2.6.2. The traveller must provide the ferry company with contact details where they may be contacted before and during the trip. 
2.6.3. A representative of a traveller group must provide their group with all the information and documents required for the trip and the ferry company with all necessary information and documents concerning the travellers. The ferry company is deemed to have satisfied its duty to provide information by making the information concerning the trip available to the group’s representative and does not need to provide the information to each individual traveller separately. A representative of a traveller group can make changes to the group’s bookings alone or together with the individual traveller requesting the changes. 
2.6.4. The traveller or the representative of a traveller group is responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide to the ferry company, such as the timing of the trip, the name(s), date(s) of birth and other personal details of the traveller(s) or any special requirements, and for providing the information on time. The ferry company cannot be held liable for any losses resulting from inaccurate or incomplete information having been provided by the traveller or the representative of a traveller group.
2.6.5. The traveller may be held liable for any consequences and/or costs incurred from their use of the services or components included in the package in a manner that violates the package travel contract. For example, failure to use all or part of any transport services included in the package may cause the traveller to lose their right to some or all remaining services.

5.1. The traveller has the right to cancel their booking if 
a) the ferry company makes substantial changes to the travel arrangements. Substantial changes include, for example, a change in transportation that results in a considerably longer travel time, changes to departure and arrival times that cause considerable inconvenience or extra costs to travellers, for example, due to having to rearrange their transport or accommodation, a change of destination or a change that significantly decreases the standard of accommodation, as well as substantial changes in the nature of the trip; or
b) they have reason to believe that the ferry company’s ability to perform the trip as agreed has been significantly compromised after the conclusion of the contract due to a force majeure circumstance at the destination or in its vicinity, such as war having broken out in the area, other serious security issues, such as terrorism, a natural disaster, such as flooding, an earthquake or weather conditions, workers’ strikes, significant risks to human health, such as the outbreak of a serious disease at the destination, or other similar circumstances, or if the trip cannot be run without endangering the traveller’s health or life for some other unexpected reason.
c) they have strong reason to believe that the ferry company will otherwise fail to deliver on some essential element of the contract. 
The traveller’s right to cancel the booking depends on the official view of Finnish authorities on the situation or official reporting by a Finnish mission. 
5.2. A traveller who wishes to cancel their booking must communicate their wish to the ferry company without undue delay. A traveller who does not inform the ferry company of their wish to cancel their booking by a reasonable deadline, given in the notice of changes, is deemed to have accepted the proposed changes

6.3. If necessary, the ferry company must arrange and pay for the return journey of any traveller who wishes to terminate the contract on the grounds of Section 6.1.a. In such circumstances, the traveller must be able to return home using the same form of transport as originally agreed and to the same location from which they departed or another location as agreed.
6.4. A traveller who wishes to interrupt their trip due to the circumstances referred to in Section 6.1.b. and whom the ferry company fails to assist in arranging their return journey pursuant to Section 2.5. have the right to make their own arrangements.

a) the services or other arrangements associated with a trip do not correspond to what has been agreed or what can be deemed to have been agreed; or
b) they fail to provide the traveller with all the information required under the Act on Travel Service Combinations concerning the terms and conditions applicable to the trip, the contents of the package, the necessary travel documents, applicable health regulations, transport links and timetables as well as other necessary information such as instructions in the event that a traveller falls ill, has an accident or encounters other similar difficulty and this can be deemed to have affected the traveller’s decision-making process; or 
c) they fail to provide assistance pursuant to Section 2.5.
12.2. A traveller failing to take advantage of some or all of the transport or other services included in the package does not constitute a breach of contract on the part of the ferry company. 
12.3. Complaints
A traveller wishing to complain about a breach of contract by the ferry company after the trip must notify the ferry company or the retailer of their complaint within a reasonable period of time from when they notice or should have noticed the breach. If the breach of contract concerns onboard services, the traveller is required to immediately notify the ferry’s info desk of the breach. 
Unless the breach of contract requires immediate remedial action, the traveller must allow a reasonable period of time for the breach to be rectified. What constitutes a reasonable period of time depends on the duration of the trip, the destination and other factors relating to the nature of the trip. 
However, the above does not prevent the traveller from filing a complaint if the ferry company or other subcontractor used by the ferry company for assistance in delivering on the contract has acted with gross negligence or in bad faith.

13. Rectifying breaches of contract 
13.1. The ferry company must rectify any breaches of contract immediately or, if immediate remedial action is not necessary, by a reasonable deadline set by the traveller and in a manner that does not result in the traveller incurring any costs or major inconvenience. What constitutes a reasonable deadline for rectifying breaches of contract depends on the nature of the breach and its effect on the traveller as well as the ferry company’s possibilities of rectifying the breach. 
The traveller may be entitled to a price reduction covering the duration of the breach pursuant to Section 15 and to compensation pursuant to Section 16 despite the ferry company’s remedial action.
13.2. The ferry company cannot be expected to rectify a breach of contract if remedial action is impossible or would result in the ferry company incurring unreasonable costs. What constitutes unreasonable costs depends on the scale of the breach and the value of the affected travel services.

14. Provision of alternative services during a trip 
14.1 If a significant portion of travel services included in a traveller’s package cannot be provided as agreed during a trip, the ferry company must make alternative arrangements to complement the package without the traveller incurring any additional costs. Such alternative services must, where possible, be of at least the same standard as the agreed travel services. The ferry company’ duty to make alternative arrangements also applies in cases where a traveller cannot be returned to their original departure location as agreed. 
If the alternative arrangements lower the value of the package compared to what was agreed in the pack-age travel contract, the ferry company must give the traveller an appropriate price reduction.  
14.2. The traveller has the right to turn down any alternative arrangements offered if they differ considerably from what was agreed in the package travel contract or if the price reduction offered by the ferry company is not proportionate to the impact of the change. A traveller who exercises their right to turn down alternative arrangements or to whom no alternative arrangements can be offered has the right to an appropriate price reduction and compensation even if they do not terminate the contract. If the traveller’s package includes a return journey home, the ferry company must arrange for the traveller to be repatriated in the manner agreed in the contract without undue delay and without the traveller incurring any additional costs.
14.3. A traveller who turns down alternative arrangements offered by the ferry company without a justifiable reason as referred to above will not be entitled to compensation or a price reduction.  

15. Price reduction
15.1. If the ferry company fails to rectify a breach of contract without delay or if the breach cannot be remedied, the traveller is entitled to a price reduction proportionate to the impact of the breach unless the ferry company can prove that the breach was caused by the traveller.
15.2. No price reduction is necessary if the breach only has a minor impact considering the entire package. The price reduction depends on the total price of the package rather than the price of the individual service affected by the breach. The traveller’s personal needs and any special wishes expressed in connection with concluding the contract can also be taken into account when assessing the impact of the breach. 

16. Compensation
16.1. The traveller is entitled to compensation for any losses incurred by them because of a breach of contract by the ferry company. The ferry company must pay the compensation without undue delay. However, the right to compensation is lost if the ferry company can demonstrate that  
a) the breach of contract was due to the traveller; 
b) the breach was due to third parties who are unrelated to the provision of travel services and it could not reasonably have been foreseen or prevented;  
c) the breach was due to the kinds of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances referred to in Section 16.8.
16.2. The traveller can be compensated, for example, for any additional costs incurred by them due to a breach of contract and for any amounts they have spent on their trip that have become worthless as well as any loss of income due to a delayed return home, additional costs incurred from having to arrange additional overnight accommodation as well as any loss of enjoyment from the holiday or trip. Compensation for the loss of enjoyment will only be paid in the case of a serious breach of contract by the ferry company.
16.3. The traveller must take any reasonable steps to mitigate their losses. The ferry company cannot be held liable for losses resulting from the traveller’s own actions. 
16.4. Compensation in the event of losses incurred during transport by sea will be calculated based on the rules or contracts applied by the transport operator to their services. The ferry company’s liability for damages in the context of transport is governed by the applicable provisions of the Finnish Maritime Act (674/1994) or Regulation (EC) No 392/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the liability of carriers of passengers by sea in the event of accidents and the Finnish Act on Transport by Air (289/1937). 
16.5. The amount of compensation payable to the traveller depends on the amount of losses incurred by them and is in all cases limited to three times the price of their package. However, this limitation of liability does not apply in the event of personal injury or other losses caused intentionally or through negligence.
16.6. To be eligible for compensation, the traveller must demonstrate that the ferry company has committed a breach of contract and that the losses are directly attributable to the breach. The burden of proof regarding the amount of losses also rests with the traveller. 
16.7. The traveller’s liability for damages payable to the ferry company is laid down in Section 2.6.1.
16.8. Unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances
The ferry company cannot be held liable for any losses resulting from unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances that are beyond the ferry company’s control and the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable steps had been taken. Force majeure circumstances are described in Section 5.1.b. 
16.9. If a traveller’s return home cannot be arranged as planned due to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances, the ferry company has a duty to cover any costs of alternative accommodation, where possible, of the standard specified in the package travel contract in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 1177/2010 concerning the rights of passengers.

17. Booking errors 
17.1. The ferry company must without undue delay reimburse the traveller for any losses incurred because of a technical fault in the ferry company’s booking system or an error made during the booking process 
17.2. However, the traveller is not entitled to compensation if the booking error is due to the traveller or the kinds of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances referred to in Section 16.8. 
17.3. Booking errors may be attributable to the traveller, for example, if they provide the ferry company with incorrect or incomplete information concerning themself or the trip. The traveller also has a general duty of care to check all provided documents, such as the booking confirmation letter, and to notify the ferry company of any missing information or mistakes as soon as possible. Any failure by a traveller to check the documents may be considered when calculating the amount of compensation payable to the traveller for any losses incurred. 

18. Deduction of compensation paid under other laws 
18.1. Any price reduction given or compensation paid to a traveller pursuant to European Union laws governing the rights of travellers or international conventions will be deducted from any compensation payable pursuant to these terms and conditions.
18.2. The traveller has a duty to declare any compensation they have received because of breaches of the package travel contract from other parties to the ferry company.

19. Claims for damages
19.1. The procedure for filing complaints concerning breaches of contract by the ferry company is laid down in Section 12.  
19.2. Claims for damages must be filed with the ferry company in writing within two months of the end of the trip.

20. Disputes
20.1. If a dispute concerning a package travel contract cannot be settled between the parties, a consumer has the right to refer the case to the Consumer Disputes Board (www.kuluttajariita.fi/en) for resolution. A consumer wishing to refer a case to the Consumer Disputes Board must first contact the Consumer Advisory Services (www.kkv.fi/en/consumer-advice/). A traveller can also file a civil suit in their local District Court.
