If you are applying for an extended permit or citizenship or renewing your residence permit card or residence card, it is possible that you do not need to visit a service point to prove your identity.

Renewal of residence permit card or residence card for a family member of an EU citizen

You need to submit separate applications if you are applying for a new residence permit card or residence card for yourself and for your child.

 

You can also apply for a new card for your child who is under 18 years of age. If you use strong identification in Enter Finland, your child may avoid the need to visit a service point.

 

If you are applying for a residence permit card both for yourself and for your child who has not turned 18, follow these instructions:

  1. Fill in and submit your own application in Enter Finland.
  2. Fill in and submit your child’s application in Enter Finland.
  3. Book an appointment for proving your identity at a service point of the Finnish Immigration Service for yourself and your child in our appointment system. Remember to select “For a family” in the appointment system. You can find instructions on how to book an appointment on the website of the Finnish Immigration Service.
