Changes will be introduced to the identity cards issued by the police. From 31 May 2011, the identity card of a Finnish citizen will be bluish in colour, the identity card of a minor purple, and the identity card of a foreign citizen brown. Identity cards issued before this date will remain valid until they expire.
Identity cards are issued by the police on application. On certain conditions, an identity card can also be issued to a foreign citizen or a minor (for more information, go to the website of the Finnish Police at www.police.fi).
