Registration of an EU citizen’s right of residence
If you are a citizen of an EU Member State, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Iceland or Norway, you do not need a residence permit for your residence in Finland. You can stay and work freely in Finland for up to three months. You must have a valid identity card or passport.
If you stay in Finland for longer than 90 days, you need to register your right of residence at the Finnish Immigration Service.
If you are an EU citizen and need to register your right of residence, you can do it at International House Helsinki.
Due to coronavirus, the Finnish Immigration Service has discontinued the issuance of EU-registration certificates at International House Helsinki until further notice. For further guidance, please visit our website migri.fi.
