We recommend that you wear a face mask when you visit a service point
You can bring your own mask. Unfortunately, we cannot hand out masks to all customers who visit our service points in Finland. Please read carefully the Recommendation and instructions on the use of face masks on THL’s website. When you are indoors in our service points, please wear a mask following the recommendations. In the waiting room, allow a sufficient safety distance (one to two metres) between yourself and other people in the room.
Due to the coronavirus situation, we may have to limit the number of customers in the waiting areas. This means that you may have to wait for your turn longer than usual outside the service point premises when visiting a service point.
