About this site

Welcome to the omaistiedustelu.fi service! Omaistiedustelu.fi is a family tracing request service maintained by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, which the family and friends of Finnish citizens travelling or residing abroad can use to make enquiries in crisis situations. Examples of crisis situations include major accidents, devastating natural catastrophes or situations entailing evacuation. In a crisis situation, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs can contact the Finns, whose details have been entered in the omaistiedustelu.fi service.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Finnish mission in any affected area cannot guarantee Finnish citizens' security abroad. The public authorities of the country in which people are staying are primarily responsible for their security. The instructions of the local authorities must be observed. The ultimate responsibility for the decision to travel and choices relating to security are on the traveller.
