Finnish Immigration Service joins International House Helsinki
International House Helsinki (IHH), offering services to international newcomers, will open its doors to new facilities on 3 April. Following the removal, IHH will offer more services. In the future, EU citizens can visit International House Helsinki to register their right of residence.
From now on, IHH's office will be located in the new premises of the Helsinki Unit of the Local Register Office of Uusimaa at Lintulahdenkuja 2 (2nd floor) in Sörnäinen. IHH is open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
IHH provides the bulk of initial advice and authority services needed by immigrants, all under one roof. After the move, more services will be offered, as the Finnish Immigration Service and the City of Espoo join the IHH co-operation as new partners. The others taking part in IHH’s activities are the City of Helsinki, the Local Register Office of Uusimaa, the Finnish Tax Administration, Kela, the Uusimaa TE Office, the Finnish Centre for Pensions, the Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce and the Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions SAK.
In the future, EU citizens can go to International House Helsinki to register their right of residence. Information about the services offered by the city of Espoo is also provided at IHH. For the registration of your right of residence, you can book an appointment at the web-site migri.fi/ajanvaraus. EU citizens can also register their right of residence at all the service points of the Finnish Immigration Service.
