Smart budgeting prevents unpleasant surprises. When planning the budget you need to allocate for the relocation process, we recommend you include the following:
FRS's core service includes all the essentials related to immigration, such as obtaining residence permits or rights of residence depending on the nationality, as well as mandatory local services like registering with local authorities, obtaining a tax card, receiving guidance on healthcare and social security, and opening a bank account.
With accompanied service, FRS provides in-person assistance and accompanies clients to necessary appointments for local registrations and other services. Unaccompanied service involves FRS instructing and booking appointments for the client but not accompanying them in person.
The start-up service is for start-up entrepreneurs.
If the main applicant has a spouse and/or children, you can choose the appropriate services accordingly.
For the spouse, you have the option of accompanied or unaccompanied service, and you can also indicate whether they will be arriving at the same time as the main applicant.
Core services for family members include immigration services as applicable, local registrations, and social security registrations.
To make the arrival smoother, we recommend adding temporary housing. FRS will arrange temporary accommodation booking for a desired period suiting the transferee's needs.
Ensuring pleasant temporary accommodation in a convenient location for the transferee makes moving to a new country far easier and more pleasant.
While staying in the temporary accommodation transferee can focus on all the needed practicalities (local registrations etc) and look for a permanent rental apartment without stress
We can assist the transferee in finding a long-term rental home, with the option of either a virtual or accompanied home search.
For accompanied home search, we will arrange up to six in-person viewings, and for virtual home search, we can provide a comprehensive virtual viewing experience before the employee's arrival.
The service includes information on rental practices and payments, rental agreement negotiations, and rental agreement pre-check.
We'll also coordinate signatures and key handover, as well as utilities connection (home insurance, electricity, internet). A move-in check will be conducted in person on the move-in date or a few days after.
For transferees with children who require daycare or schooling, we highly recommend adding our school and daycare search program to their relocation package.
Finding suitable options for children is crucial to the successful integration of families, and we understand the importance of this process. Our team will provide support in applying to and selecting the most appropriate school and daycare options available.
Adding orientation services to the program is highly recommended to help the transferee settle in and start their new life in Finland as smoothly and quickly as possible.
The orientation includes not only an introduction to Finnish health care and the closest health station but also guidance on local stores, hobbies, and public transportation, among others, based on the transferee's interests.
By taking advantage of this service, the transferee can have peace of mind, knowing they have someone to help them navigate their new surroundings, allowing them to focus on onboarding in their new job.
You can select any other additional services as necessary. Please keep in mind that services such as Finnish ID card and driver's license exchange can also be included in the orientation. You can find more information about spouse support from here
