I want to become a Finnish citizen

If your identity has been reliably established and you meet the other requirements for the acquisition of citizenship, you may acquire Finnish citizenship by submitting an application.

In certain cases, you may get Finnish citizenship by submitting a declaration. This is faster and costs less.

You may use the same application or declaration to apply for citizenship for your underage children. If you only wish to apply for citizenship for your child, please see the section I want my child to become a Finnish citizen for further information.

This Application Finder helps you find the right application. Answer the questions, and the Application Finder will take you to a page that explains the application requirements that you need to meet. On the same page, you will find a list of the documents you need to attach to your application.

We built the Application Finder to help you. Your answers will not be recorded or saved.
