Unemployed as an EU citizen in Finland - E301

Posted 3 Weeks Ago at 10:40 PM by Aleksis Kivi

If you come to Finland and have worked in your home country and you are unemployed in Finland, then you can transfer your unemployment benefits from your home country to Finland.

All you need is to send the form E301 which you get at the employment offices in Finland from Finland to your home country.

Registering in Helsinki as an EU National

Posted 3 Weeks Ago at 10:35 PM by Aleksis Kivi

If you want to live in Helsinki, you need to register as well in Helsinki.

First, you need to go to the Foreign Police with some money and passport photos. Then you should go to the Magistrate and take the papers you got from the Foreign Police as well as your Work Contract (they dont register you without a work contract) if you are not a student.

Afterwards you can get forms for paying Taxes.
