Our Oulu office is moving to new facilities in Linnanmaa. The new address is Tutkijankuja 9, 90590 Oulu. Asylum interviews will be conducted and the customer services of the service point will be provided at the new address after the move. We will open the new office on Monday 1 February 2021.

The service point will be closed between 25 and 29 January 2021 while we are moving

At the service point you can, among other things

  • submit an application for a residence permit, EU registration, citizenship or a passport
  • prove your identity.

Asylum interviews and service of asylum decisions 

Asylum interviews will be conducted and asylum decisions will be served in Linnanmaa from 3 February 2021.

The invitation to an asylum interview or service of a decision will explain where the meeting will be held.

The new office has good public transport connections

The nearest bus stop is located on Linnanmaantie road at some 200 metres from the new office. Linnanmaa is connected to Oulu city centre by several bus lines, and the journey takes around 25 minutes. A small number of free parking spaces is available for customers with cars.

The address in Linnanmaa is very new. This is why such applications as Google Maps show it as Tutkijantie 5. See the location of the new office on the map

The new facilities are temporary

The office will only operate in Linnanmaa until its new, permanent facilities in the city centre have been finished. Currently, the city centre facilities are expected to be ready in 2023.
