APPLYING FOR A FINNISH PASSPORT ONLINE
Standard passport applications can be submitted via the Police’s eServices or in person at a police license services point of your choice. It is easiest to do this online:
1. Have your photograph taken at a photography studio that can send your Finnish passport online photograph to the Police electronically. Find your nearest photographer here: www.lupakuvienvastaanotto.fi/kuvaamoluettelo
2. Fill in the application online: www.poliisi.fi/online. Attach the photograph retrieval code that you received from the photographer to your application. Pay the application fee online.
A passport photograph attached to an application shall not be older than six months.
If you apply for an identity card and a passport at the same time, a lower-than-normal fee will be charged for the card. This applies to both online applications and applications made at a license services point.
Finnish passport online citizens residing abroad are issued by Finnish missions abroad instead of the Police. Using the Police’s eServices from abroad is not prohibited, but the same service level as found within Finland cannot be guaranteed.
Applications submitted online are also paid for online. Paying with a credit card is also possible with the most common credit cards. An unpaid application will not become pending and the license official is unable to process it.
