About the Service
InfoFinland is a multi-language website providing vital information to people planning to move to Finland and to immigrants already living in the country. The website also helps authorities with multi-language communications.
InfoFinland offers users reliable information in their own language about moving to Finland, work, studying, housing, education, health, family, problem situations and leisure activities. The information is being continuously updated.
The InfoFinland website is responsive. It is easy to use with various devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
The languages of the service are Finnish, Swedish, English, Russian, Estonian, French, Somali, Spanish, Turkish, Chinese, Persian and Arabic. The language versions are identical in content. A translation agency is responsible for the translations.
InfoFinland also has links to materials that have been published in other languages.
