A passport application can only be processed if the applicant´s personal data (e.g., name, date/place of birth and citizenship) is correct and up-to-date in the Finnish Population Information System according to Population Information Act (661/2009). E.g., name change due to marriage or a child born outside Finland needs to be registered in the Finnish Population Information System before submitting a passport application. The information may be checked from the Local Register Office http://www.maistraatti.fi once a year without any fees.


 Documents must be presented as both original and copy:

- A proof of Finnish citizenship e.g. US visa or Green Card (+copy). Applicants of multi/dual citizenship shall confirm that the foreign citizenship is registered in the Finnish Population Registry. Otherwise, an applicant shall present a proof of the date when the foreign citizenship was obtained e.g. original or legalized US citizenship naturalization or a birth certificate. (+copy).

- Male applicants age of 17-30: a document of military service status: e.g., military passport, certificate of exemption or suspension order + copy.
