Signature authentication at Finnish missions

The signature of a private Finnish citizen or foreign citizen residing permanently in Finland can be authenticated at the local Finnish mission if the concerned person is known or proves their identity appropriately.

If the concerned person does not sign their name at the mission (for instance if they have already signed a document before coming to the mission), they must personally confirm that the signature is their own. 

Signatures can be authenticated at the Embassy of Finland in Ottawa or in one of our Honorary Consulates in Canada.
