Re: Citizenship Application 2020

Anyone any Idea if my family situation would grant the possibility to visit migri service point in Helsinki without an appointment, who should I ask if so? This extends to Migri but be prepared to have to argue a bit. https://www.oikeusasiamies.fi/en/-/poliisin-lupapalveluihin-on-paastava-ilman-aja...

Re: Retire in Finland Blog

Re: Opportunity to work in Finland

Luxury. Our family of four lived on far less. Your quoted rent is for some kind of mansion - In the rural area maybe a mansion, if you hire from VVO in Vantaa or Espoo (or are they called Lumo nowadays?) you get a 5 room Apartment for 1500. (this will include heating and water and 10Mbit internet)....

Oh yeah nothing, you can get the same service but it is only the idea that because you lived in another country and not in Finland ...
