The Immigration Unit helps refugees and people in similar positions living in Helsinki with their integration process. The Immigration Unit’s services include guidance, advisory services and carrying out initial reviews.
The Immigration Unit also helps the victims of human trafficking.
Immigration Unit services: open on weekdays from 9:00 to 16:00 by appointment. If necessary, we also offer evening appointments until 18:00.
The purpose of the initial review is to help you find the services you need to support your integration process. You can apply for an initial review with the Immigration Unit if you are not an unemployed jobseeker.
