Re: Are "de facto unions" recognized in Finland?

Hello all, I may be able to secure a job in Finland and I will be moving there with my girlfriend which, unlike myself, is not an EU citizen. I was therefore wondering if Finland recognizes "de facto unions" (we've been together for over two years and I have ample photographic material and document...

Re: Getting a taste of Finnish language and culture by an extended visit? Or perhaps study?

If people are telling you things like this, I would advise to consider it carefully, and not see it as negativity. I've seen so many people fail in this country, burn through all their money, having to leave the country on a flight ticket bought from a loan from their country's embassy. If I expres...

Re: Getting a taste of Finnish language and culture by an extended visit? Or perhaps study?

Oh god Yes, drunk Finns will talk to you in bars and clubs and be chatty and friendly. And then you will never see them again, or if you did they would not remember you. You will also find it easy enough to get laid via the same method of chatting to drunken people in bars. Most likely you won't se...

Re: A Little Help

Well...I mean, I can't jump on a plane and go to Finland. There's a specific reason it's set there. I know there are certain nuances that you get from being there, but I have learned in my writing education that if you research thoroughly enough, you won't get laughed at (unless you leave something...

Re: A Little Help

I am writing something that involves me knowing something about the healthcare system in Finland. I have researched a little, but it seems that there are mixed messages depending on what you read. In the early 90's, would a child that had some sort of illness (like chronic bronchitis or something) ...

Hi, I am a third year student in Japanese art university. I'm studying design. I want to be professional illustrator and wish to do my work in Finland. (I love Finnish environment and design. ) I heard that Finland is very difficult country to settle in. So I think it's better to get a job experien...

Re: Hay Fever Treatments

You can also ask a pharmacist, they almost always speak English and are very helpful. Just don't ask for anything homeopathic. Isn't that the dilution stuff? Then it would be best just to drink waste water, all the drugs in homeopathic quantities. I agree, there are just so many countries where pha...

Re: Hay Fever Treatments

I am trying to help a friend with bad hay fever. It seems that a lot of the, over the counter in the UK, remedies aren't available in Finland. Has anyone found a good barrier nasal spray like the natural plant silicone powders available in the UK. If it's a bad case of pollen allergy I would go see...

Re: EU Right of Residence Application + Finding a Flat

With that budget, actually you could also look into forenom.com - they used to have super cheap, super small, super cute apartments, but I later did not find the prices for which I first rented anymore. But with 800 you should find something good. They are amazing, 10/10 would rent again. I am wond...

Re: questions regarding unemployment benefit application

What might have happened is that they saw the word 'course' and automatically decided you are doing some sort of education, and therefore cannot get unemployment benefits. Even if you wrote all of it correctly, they might have just put you in that corner and don't wanna change their mind now. They c...

Re: questions regarding unemployment benefit application

Well, the 40 hours a week is no official number, but TE employees are happy if you fulfill that. (Have a close friend who works for the TE-office, so get a bit of info from there.). The new rule is that now you also have to apply for two jobs a week, every week, not just on average. No matter if the...
