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 application form is filled out in advance but not signed until the appointment.
The passport fee needs to be paid with a money order/certified check/cashier’s check made out to the ”Embassy of Finland Consular Fees Los Angeles”. The exchange rate (and therefore the passport fee) for November in USD will be released at the end of October.
Passport 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 http://www.maistraatti.fi once a year without any fees.
