Certificates from the Population Information System
You can order certificates of your personal data for acceptable purposes of use. The certificates show your official information saved in the Population Information System.
You are not required to provide separate certificates when dealing with a Finnish authority. The authorities receive the necessary information directly from the Population Information System.
Certificates ordered and delivered through the self-service are cheaper, and you receive certificates quickly. Prices can be found at the bottom of the page.
How to order certificates
You can order a certificate of yourself or another person for an acceptable purpose of use. Please note that you can use the self-service only to order a certificate for yourself or your dependants.
You can order a standard certificate via the self-service. This means that the self-service certificate always has the same information and the selected optional information. We have listed the information on self-service certificates separately for each certificate type. If you need other information, order the certificate by email, phone or a form. You can find the certificate types at the top of this page.
When ordering a certificate via the self-service, you need online banking codes or a mobile certificate for the order. The self-service is a quick way to get certificates at a cheaper price. Please note that you can use the self-service only to order a certificate for yourself or your dependants.
You cannot use the self-service when you are abroad.
