The main task of the Embassy is to offer consular services and security for Finnish citizens and process residence permit applications for foreign nationals wishing to reside in Finland, among others.

The Embassy of Finland also provides services for Finnish companies interested in investing in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi, and aims to link African businesses to Finnish ones.

The Embassy of Sweden in Lusaka, operating in the same premises as the Embassy of Finland, has since 2011 handled all visa applications to Finland in Zambia. The Embassy of Finland continues, however, to handle all other consular affairs, such as residence permit applications.
