Decree of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs on Fees for Services Produced by the Foreign Service (377/2014) (in Finnish).
The passport fee is paid when submitting the passport application. The fee is charged even if you are refused a passport. In countries where a passport can be sent by post, the mission will charge the postal fees in advance.
The processing fee for passport applications submitted at Finnish missions abroad is EUR 140. It can take between one week and several weeks to receive an ordinary passport.
Finnish missions abroad can also issue fast-track passports. The processing fee for a fast-track passport is EUR 160. A fast-track passport is delivered 2–3 days faster than an ordinary passport.
It is not currently possible to apply for an express passport at Finnish missions abroad.
Temporary and emergency passports
In exceptional cases, we can issue a temporary passport, which costs EUR 175. In exceptional situations, a hand-written emergency passport can be issued for a one-way trip for a fee of EUR 160.
For a national seafarer’s card, a temporary alien’s passport or a laissez-passer, as well as for an Emergency Travel Document (EDT) issued for EU citizens for a single journey home, Finnish missions charge EUR 140.
Passports for veterans of Finnish wars
Front-line veterans of the Finnish wars and persons who took part in mine clearing in 1945–1952 are entitled to a passport that is valid for over one year at EUR 60 (price reduced under the Decree). For a fast-track passport, they are charged the normal price as set in the Decree.
Passport types and fees in Canada
Payment can only be made in Canadian dollars in cash, by certified cheque or by money order made payable to the Embassy of Finland. See prices in Canadian dollars at Service Fees. Temporary passports cannot be applied at Finnish mission in Canada.
Fees are non-refundable and are subject to change according to Finnish Foreign Ministry's exchange rate fluctuations. Service fees are based on decrees stated by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of the Interior of Finland.
The new passport can be picked up from the Embassy of Finland or Finnish honorary consulate in Toronto or Vancouver by the applicant or a person authorized by the applicant. Otherwise, please provide a prepaid, self-addressed Expresspost or courier service envelope for forwarding the passport securely to you (e.g. Canada Post Xpress, Purolator, Fedex).
