Purchase fishing permits online
Fishing permits can now be easily obtained online, by paying the compulsory national fisheries management fee and fees for provincial lure fishing permits.
Information about fees
These pages feature basic information about the different types of fees and permits, and clear instructions on how to use this service. More information about fishing permits you can find here
Choose the right province
Make sure you correctly specify the province where you will be fishing when paying the provincial lure fishing fee. To check which province your local fishing district belongs to, see the list of municipalities published by the Ministry of the Interior
The provinces are no longer official administrative entities in Finland, but provincial lure fishing fees will continue to follow the old provincial boundaries.
When you have paid your fees on your web bank, remember to click on the button “Return to seller’s website” to ensure your payment is correctly logged.
