Changes to prices of services provided by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Finland’s missions abroad
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs proposes an increase to some of the prices of services provided by Finland’s missions abroad and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The new prices would enter into force on 1 September 2023.
For example, the price of a passport issued by a mission would rise from EUR 175 to EUR 235, and the prices of notarial services would increase by EUR 10–20. On the other hand, the price of an identity card issued by a mission would decrease from EUR 96 to EUR 60.
These changes will bring the prices of services provided by the Foreign Service closer to their cost price. The adjustments to the fees are based on the cost-price principle under the Act on Criteria for Charges Payable to the State and the general rise in costs.
The Decree of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs on Fees for Services Produced by the Foreign Service in 2023 will be submitted for consideration by the Ministerial Finance Committee on 31 August 2023.
All of the price changes are listed in the attached table (in Finnish).
