Good to know
Great that you have chosen Finland and HAMK to your study destination! As it comes to the immigration issues, we kindly want to remind, that you should treat all issues relating to your Finnish immigration with the appropriate seriousness.
All matters relating to immigration in Finland are administered through Finnish Immigration Service (Maahanmuuttovirasto). Please visit their website at www.migri.fi. The website provides immigration information in many different languages, processing times in days for student residence permits, appeal procedures, a flowchart for residence permit process with Finnish diplomatic missions abroad, and information about other immigration matters.
