Nordic citizens’ permits and notifications

If you are a Nordic citizen and you are moving to Finland, you do not have to apply for a residence permit or give reasons for residing in Finland. If you intend to live in Finland for over six months, register at the Local Register Office one week after moving to the country. If you aim to establish a company, you need to obtain a Finnish personal identity code. The process of establishing a business is similar as for Finnish citizens.
