It seems that you have found your great grandmothers passport. The texts mean both passport, the first one in Swedish ( PASS FOR UTRIKES RESA.) and the second in Finnish(MATKAPASSI ULKOMAILLE).

You will find information about genealogy and research in Finland in the Internetsite of the Genealogical Society of Finland, http://www.genealogia.fi/indexe.htm . Maybe the site of the Institute of Migration would also be of some interest to you, http://www.migrationinstitute.fi/index_e.php .
