Moving from one address to another outside Finland

If you are a Finnish citizen changing address while living abroad, you should inform a local register office in Finland using either:

  • an electronic form that you can fill in or a form that you can print out at Suomi.fi
  • letter or email, stating your name, date of birth and your old and new address.

You can also submit the notification to the nearest Finnish embassy or consulate. By keeping your address details up-to-date in the Population Information System, you will make sure that you will receive important documents such as notifications of your right to vote (notification of eligibility) whenever there is an election in Finland.
