Instructions on relaying information about expatriate finns
Information about the address and personal circumstances of Finnish nationals residing abroad only stays up to date if persons report any changes in such information. Notifications may be made to the local register office of the municipality of most recent residence or to the nearest Finnish Embassy or Consulate in the current country of residence. Information to be notified includes information about marriage and divorce, birth of children and address. Current information in the Population Information System expedites e.g. the issuance of Finnish passports.
