Proposal made to launch consular services at Finland’s Embassy in Doha – Ministry for Foreign Affairs

The request for comments has been sent to a selected group. However, others are also welcome to comment on the proposed amendment and the explanatory memorandum.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs requests comments on a draft proposal for amending the Decree of the President of the Republic on the Locations of Finland’s Diplomatic Missions and the Provision of Consular Services in the Foreign Service. The consultation round will be open until 20 March 2024.
The proposal would improve the situation of consular service recipients in Qatar, who would be provided with Finnish official services, such as passport issuance and renewal, at the Embassy of Finland in Doha as of 1 June 2024, making travelling to Abu Dhabi for this purpose unnecessary.

The proposal for amendments is available at lausuntopalvelu.fi(Link to another website.).
