- Public service
The City of Porvoo’s immigrant services gives you practical guidance and advice in various matters.
You have access to the same public services as the other residents of Porvoo.
We offer you advice on where to find more information on for example:
- health services
- hobbies and leisure opportunities.
We will help you settle down in Porvoo and Finland. We cooperate with authorities and organisations.
The immigrant services office offers you advice in your own language:
- Arabic, Mondays at 9-11 and Wednesdays at 13-15.
To whom and on what terms
The service is free of charge.
Immigrants are offered guidance and counselling related to integration, health and social welfare services, housing, personal finance and livelihood, studying and work. The advisers explain what services are available, how they can be accessed and what the preconditions for using them are. They direct immigrants to all service providers.
Immigrants can get counselling for example on telephone or by visiting a service point. The advisers do not make decisions related to the services.
