Customer service at the consulate by appointment only

As from 4 November 2016, a prior appointment is required for Finnish passports and notarial services. The consulate section is also extending the opening hours for customer service and telephone enquiries. With the reform, we are aiming to make the consulate services more accessible and faster for our customers.

As from 4 November 2016, you will need to make an appointment in advance for passport and notarial services. In case of emergency, a booked appointment is not necessary.
