Issues related to changing the name

Post by newborn » Fri Mar 15, 2019 2:56 am

Hello

I would like to change my first and last name. I would like to know some things. Such as

What is the procedure here in Finland?
What is the cost?
What will I need to do for all things here in Finland (e.g Bank, the degree certificates in Finland, my national ID card/passport)?
What will happen to my names in the birth certificate, educational certificates that I have got in my home country?

Birth and educational certificates you should ask from the country of origin and relevant institution.

It would take 2-4 month to process it for Finnish citizen. Im not sure about your case

After they approve your new name. police / bank/ kela and population center will be noticed about it by maistraatti.

Fee : 45€ for first name . Last name : 100€

And ofc, you have to apply to renew all the cards you have had before with your old name such as : bank card, library card, K market card bla bla bla....
