Preparing for arrival

Main image

This page provides information on practices necessary for entering and starting your stay in Finland. Please note that some immigration processes must be started well in advance, up to 6 months prior to coming to Finland.

Your personal identity code is a priority when coming. It is used for identification purposes for example in banks, hospitals and registers of different authorities.

Apply for the personal identity code from the International House Helsinki service in Helsinki or from Local Register Office Helsinki, or in the first residence permit application.
