Identity Card for a Foreign Citizen
Rather than carrying your passport always with you, you may want to consider applying for an identity card for a foreign citizen. The local police can issue an identity car to a foreign national who
- resides permanently in Finland
- has been entered into the Population Information System
- can reliably prove his/her identity
The identity card of a foreign national can be used for identification in Finland, but cannot be used as a travel document when travelling abroad.
