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.
Do you want to apply for a change of forename at the same time?
The change of forename in connection with gender confirmation is free of charge when you change your forename for the first time to match your gender identity.
Do you want to change your parenthood title?
A parenthood title means the information recorded in the Population Information System whether the parent is the child’s father or mother. You can apply to change the title at or after confirmation of gender. You can apply to change the title from 1 March 2024, when we will publish an online form.
