Confirmation of gender
Confirmation of gender means that your gender entered in the Population Information System will be corrected to correspond to your gender identity.
We can confirm that you belong to another gender if the following conditions are met:
you are an adult
you are a Finnish citizen or have a place of residence in Finland
you write a separate account of your feeling of permanently being of the gender to be confirmed in the application.
Your personal identity code changes at the same time when your gender is confirmed.
Confirmation of gender requires you to submit an application and confirm it later
You can apply for confirmation of gender with an application from us. After that, you must confirm your application. You can do this at the earliest 30 days and no later than six months after submitting the application. If you do not confirm your application, we cannot confirm your gender and the matter will lapse. In this case, you can submit a new application if you wish.
