Finland–Turkey relations are foreign relations between Finland and Turkey. The Ottoman Empire recognized the independence of Finland on February 21, 1918. Diplomatic relations between them were established on May 20, 1920. Finland has an embassy in Ankara and an honorary consulate general in Istanbul and other honorary consulates in Adana, Alanya, Antalya, Belek, Bodrum, Izmir, and Kayseri. Turkey has an embassy in Helsinki.
In October 2021, in the wake of the appeal for the release of Turkish activist Osman Kavala signed by 10 western countries, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ordered his foreign minister to declare the Finnish ambassador persona non grata, alongside the other 9 ambassadors. However, the ambassadors did not receive any formal notice to leave the country and Erdoğan eventually stepped back.
