Migri will resume ordinary service as of 1 September 2020
The Finnish Immigraton Service will resume ordinary service as of 1 September 2020 after the exceptional circumstances caused by the coronavirus epidemic. In urgent matters, you can visit the service points of the Finnish Immigration Service and queue using waiting numbers. You will be able to submit an application on Enter Finland or when visiting a service point by appointment.
On Tuesday 1 September, the Finnish Immigration Service will also reopen its service point at International House Helsinki (IHH). At IHH, the Finnish Immigration Service handles EU registrations by appointment. You can book an appointment in the appointment system. New appointments become available always for a week at a time.
You can no longer institute a matter by email or by post
During the coronavirus epidemic, it was possible to submit an application on a paper form by post or by email to the Finnish Immigration Service. This option will no longer be available after 1 September 2020. If we receive an application by post after this date, it will be returned to you.
If you have submitted your application to us by email or by post before 1 September 2020, you do not need to schedule an appointment or queue at the service point with a waiting number. You will be invited to visit the service point for identification. There is no need to worry - just wait until we contact you!
Waiting number queues are intended for urgent applications
