Have you fled Ukraine? Make sure that the Finnish Immigration Service has your current address details
It is important that the Finnish Immigration Service know your current address so that we can, for example, send you our decision on your temporary protection application.
Notify your reception centre of your new address. The Finnish Immigration Service will get the information from the reception centre.
Address details of unaccompanied children particularly important
Unaccompanied children are typically provided accommodation in a group home. Children may also stay in private accommodation with relatives, for example.
If you are living in private accommodation with a child and you move to a new address, notify the child’s group home or reception centre of the change.
- You should provide the following information about the child: first and last name, date of birth, Finnish Immigration Service customer number, and the address of the child’s new accommodation. Also include your own contact details (first and last name, telephone number and email address).
- You can contact the group home or reception centre by telephone, or visit in person. Notifications may also be sent by post. The contact details of reception centres are available on our website at migri.fi/en/reception-centers.
Making sure that the address details of unaccompanied children are up to date is also important so that the necessary services can be organised for them.
Adults and families: Notify your reception centre of a new address without delay
If you are living in private accommodation and move to another address in Finland, notify your reception centre of the new address. This is important in order to make sure that you maintain your right to reception services.
- Provide the following information: first and last name, date of birth, Finnish Immigration Service customer number, and your new address. Also make sure to include your own contact details (telephone number and email address).
- You can contact your reception centre by telephone, or visit in person. Notifications may also be sent by post. The contact details of reception centres are available on our website at migri.fi/en/reception-centers.
If you move from one reception centre to another, the Finnish Immigration Service is informed automatically. Therefore, you don’t need to notify us separately of your new reception centre's address.
If you don't know which reception centre is yours, you can send your notification of a new address to the Finnish Immigration Service. Notifications should be sent by encrypted email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send an encrypted message by using the securemail.migri.fi service.
