Maintenance outages

  • Maintenance outage on Thursday 23 July 2020 from 9 am to 3 pm. During that day, there may be downtime in all of Findata’s IT-systems, which is why we do not recommend using the application system at that time.
  • There is a maintenance outage in the system every weekday from 8 am to 9 am.

System malfunctions

  • Currently, the system automatically logs the applicant out after a certain time limit, and the form is not saved automatically. We advise to to save your unfinished application approximately every 15 minutes.
  • We have detected problems when using Internet Explorer. We recommend using other browsers.


  • Currently, the identification and thus, submitting a data permit application, is possible for persons who have a personal identity code registered in the Finnish Population Information System. The deployment of other identification methods is underway.
