Immigration regulations for Nordic nationals
If you are a citizen of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, or Iceland, you do not need a residence permit to study in Finland. Citizens of the Nordic countries may reside, work, and study in Finland without any limitations.
Nationals of the Nordic countries who intend to reside in Finland for more than three months, must register their residency in Finland within one month after moving to Finland:
- Registration should be done in person at the Digital and Population Data Services Agency.
- Bring your address details in Finland and your passport with you
- Register a permanent address in Finland so that you receive the benefits of having a municipality of residence registered
- Aquire a Finnish personal identity code which you need to inform the Student Service Point in Helsinki or the Office of Study Affairs in Vaasa as soon as possible.
More information on mobility between the Nordic countries can be obtained from the Norden website.
