Renewing or applying for the Finnish Passport is never straightforward. You have to find the consulates, travel all the way there – to New York City, Washington D.C., or elsewhere. And then you have to go through multiple hurdles to get all the necessary paperwork in order to be able to travel to Finland. It is simply exhausting.
I remember when we even had to use a special machine to come to Minnesota from Finland every year. Not anymore.
