Foreign hygiene passports and qualifications

A so-called hygiene passport or qualification or education on food hygiene undertaken in other countries does not replace a proficiency certificate, in other words a Hygiene Passport issued in accordance with Finnish Food Authority's model. Even though you may have these, you cannot receive a Hygiene Passport without passing a Hygiene Passport test. 

It depends on the state whether it accepts the Finnish Hygiene Passport. It is worth asking directly from the authorities of that state.
