    I found a former Helsinki expat who had recently moved back to Brazil, so we swapped all the important need-to-knows.

Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Finland!

Finland is a beautiful Scandinavian country with stunning snowy vistas and glorious mountain views. Outdoor activities abound from snow sports to trekking and exploring, and the fresh, crisp, and clean environment makes a great change for any expat more used to a sweltering, busy city environment. But it’s not just about the natural beauty; Finland is also a vibrant economic center bursting with job opportunities for any expat with the right skills, especially around the growing trading hub that is the capital city, Helsinki. Expat life in Finland is a rewarding and relaxing one, giving an attractive and sometimes awe-inspiring backdrop to any working life. The standard of living here, like many other Scandinavian countries, is high with new build houses and social services built and maintained to a modern and meticulous standard. From schools to swimming pools, life in Finland is a clean and efficient one, especially around Helsinki and other major cities — so join up with our community in Finland today for an easy introduction into this pleasant and safe society.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.

The International Community for Like-Minded Expats

Despite being a great place to live with a fine living standard, relocating to a foreign country can be a tough task for any expat. Homesickness, culture shock and the language barrier can all make a move difficult — luckily InterNations' friendly and welcoming community of expats are always ready to help, both online and offline. From football and hiking for the active expat, to dancing and singles nights for the more socially minded, there are plenty of activities available in Helsinki. So if you’re struggling to adapt to Finnish society and are yearning for the company of a like-minded expat who speaks your language (or just want some helpful answers to your important questions), join the InterNations community today and start getting the support you need.

    Some information on InterNations helped me a great deal, and I'm sure other expats in Helsinki feel the same way.
