On the website of the Finnish Immigration service there is information about the requirements for residence permits and citizenship in Finland. Information is available also in English:

Finnish Immigration Service


A Finnish citizen can apply for citizenship for a minor child in his/her care. A child is minor is he/she is under 18 years of age and unmarried. It is not allowed to apply for citizenship for a child who is already an adult. You can read about the criteria for obtaining citizenship on the following webpage:
