Moving abroad in another address

A Finnish citizen must always inform us when her or his address changes either in Finland or abroad. Submit a notification of move using the instructions on this page when you move abroad from an address to another. You may move from one country to another or within one country.  

It is important that you notify your foreign address so that the Finnish authorities can reach you more quickly in matters concerning you, such as pension decisions and military service letters. You can also get a passport faster. 

Make a notification of move using this form

You can make changes to the notification via the local Finnish mission.
