Joensuu Immigration Services

The Joensuu service point for immigrants is located at Siltakatu 10 A 13, 5th floor. Immigration Services are responsible for immigrant guidance and information services, initial interviews, integration plans as well as tasks related to the municipal reception of refugees. We assist in dealing with all necessary matters connected to the authorities.

The Joensuu Immigration Services are free and confidential. The goal is to assist in the process of integration. Counselors are available for customers from Monday to Friday at 9-11 and 12-15.

You can contact the counselors by phone, e-mail, Facebook or by visiting us.

Joensuu Immigration Services will start organizing group discussions

There are group discussions about 17 different themes that are related to integration and living in Finland. All group discussions will be held several times per year, and therefore you do not need to rush to participate in all of them during this autumn. The groups are run mainly by our integration advisers, but in some of them, there will be guest speakers. 
You will find the schedules for the group discussions held in English here. Groups will meet in Joensuu city centre at Hotel Aada in a cabinet room called Yläkabsu-kabinetti, Kauppakatu 32. You will be picked up by the integration adviser at the hotel reception.
You need to sign up to attend the discussions, please send an email to maahanmuuttajapalvelut(at) or call 013 337 0333. 


Open Mon 12-15 and Tue-Fri 9-11 & 12-15
