The application process is virtually the same as at the Consulate except:
1. the applicant needs to provide photocopies of the original documents brought to the appointment.
2. the passport (and optional ID card) application form is filled out in advance but not signed until the appointment.
3. The passport fee 160USD in March 2019 needs to be paid with a money order, certified check or cashier's check made out to the ”Embassy of Finland Consular Fees Los Angeles”. In case you are applying for both passport and ID card, the fee is 225USD.

Passport and ID card applications can be processed only when the personal information in the Population Information System is correct and up-to-date (e.g. name). The applicant shall ensure that the personal information is correct according to the Population Information Act (661/2009). The information may be checked from the Local Register Office once a year without any fees.
