If you do not live in close proximity to the Finnish Consular Section, it will be easier for anyone to buy a visa through a travel agency.

For example, I overpay this way 500 rub. But me and the trip to the consulate will cost 500 rub.
And it is necessary to give documents once, and again to go to pick them up.
Stand in line, waste time. So here without options, only through the travel agency.

Do not forget the insurance, although if you do a visa in a travel agency, you will receive a visa with insurance.
