Registration of birth in the Population Register System (EU countries)

Births of Finnish citizens outside Finland must be notified to the Local Register Office. You can also submit the notification at a Finnish embassy or send it there to be posted to the Local Register Office for registration.

An Apostille stamp is not required for a birth certificate, which is issued by an EU country authority and a translation of the certificate is not needed if a multilingual standard form is appended to the document.
