Welcome to the Helsinki capital region. Moving to a new country can be an exciting experience but there are a few steps to take before you can start living and working in Finland. International House Helsinki (IHH) provides a wide range of information and public authority services to meet the needs of international newcomers in the Helsinki capital region.
It is important to plan your visit and book appointments, when required, before visiting our IHH service centre. Our IHH staff guide you through this process, both our general guidance services and our chat can answer any questions you have about which steps to take and in which order.
