Average processing times of services for private customers
The processing time shown on this page is the current average for personal customer applications for which no additional clarifications are required.
Some applications are processed somewhat faster than the average, and some slower. A longer than average processing time is often due to the fact that the application lacked information or attachments, and they were requested from the applicant. The processing time also depends on how quickly you pay the possible processing fee. Processing can also become congested if there are many applications at once.
In the e-service Certificates from the Population Information System you can order several certificates and get access to them immediately.
The processing times are updated twice a month, most recently 7.2.2023.
