Certificates to Finland
If you order a certificate for a Finnish actor, you will receive the certificate as an electronic PDF document. No signature will be added to the document, and you cannot add a translation form or an Apostille certificate to it later.
You can download the certificate as soon as you have made the payment. The certificate can also be delivered to Suomi.fi Messages. If you do not use Suomi.fi Messages yet, you can enable it when you order the certificate. Certificates will not be delivered by post or, for data protection reasons, by email.

Certificates sent abroad
If you order certificates for a foreign authority or for some other foreign actor, they will be posted to your home address because certificates required abroad must usually be signed.
You can also order an EU translation form or an Apostille. Which one you need depends on the area that you need the certificate for.

Ordering a certificate when living abroad
If you live abroad, you cannot order a certificate through this service yet. Ordering a certificate when living abroad will become possible in the future. To order, you will need a Finnish identification token, such as your online banking codes.

If you cannot use this service or need a certificate with more extensive information, see other ways to order a certificate on the Digital and Population Data Services Agency website(Opens in a new window).
