The application process is virtually the same as at the Consulate except:
1. the applicant needs to provide copies of the original documents brought to the appointment.
2. the application form is filled out in advance but not signed until the appointment.
The Consulate General will send the application form to all confirmed applicants before the trip takes place. 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”. Please note that the fees may change monthly; please check our service fees in March for the correct amount.
Applications can only be processed when the applicant’s 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). You can check your information from the Local Register Office once a year without any fees.
