In Espoo Advisory Service


In Espoo serves people moving from abroad

People moving to Espoo from abroad can obtain guidance and advice on day-to-day issues and on dealing with the authorities from the In Espoo Advisory Service. In Espoo provides services in Finnish, Swedish, English and Russian. The service is free of charge.

The advisory service provides information on the service system, available forms of support and the various authorities and directs customers to the appropriate services. The advisory service staff can explain official letters and help fill in applications and other forms. The advisory service does not include the making of actual official decisions. Customers are given guidance in using electronic services, and the advisory service also has terminals available for customers.

Typical advisory issues for advice include Finnish social security and health services, housing, Finnish language courses and other training and education, job opportunities, free-time activities as well as issues related to citizenship or work and residence permits.

If necessary, we will guide you to the appropriate place where the issue concerning you can be taken care of.
