Anyone has experience in this? I think they told me it takes 3 weeks to the send the card home but I wanted to check if this was the case.

Do you speak finnish? I got 2 mail from them today, one with the codes and the other with a lot of documents but no debit card. Does the card come in a separate mail? Whats important to know in these documents?

As far as I know, Nordea is the only bank that has a policy of full english communication, which makes it very convenient for foreigners who don't speak finnish. Maybe a little late as you have already open an account in another bank, but just saying.

What do you mean by "will not let me login"? How far in the process do you get before running into problems, and what exactly is the problem (e.g. is there an error message)?

Well, it's either the bank, the service itself or your browser (including any plugins you may be using). Not much you can do other than try what's suggested.

I tried everything, different browser, different computer. I contacted S-pankki and also left a feedback at the government wbsite where they could contact me if required. Don't know what else I should do.

According to vrk.fi/suomi.fi-tunnistus is only available for citizens, it will work for EU-citizens in future. The error seems to have spawned from suomi.fi so I think we found the issue.

Got the answer from the bank. It will work after I have EU passport / Finnish passport / Finnish ID card. So I guess I have to do the paper application for the Finnish ID card.

I believe Finnish driving license is also valid, can anyone confirm this?

A driving license is officially not a valid ID (even though it is accepted in many places as proof of identity), a passport and an ID card are.
