Info Gloria is a low-threshold help desk for immigrants where you can ask any question related to your life and daily living. Gloria provides information about immigrants’ rights and obligations in Finland, work, education, resident permit, citizenship related issues and social and health services.

You can obtain guidance in Finnish and English every day. However, there are eight languages in which you can get guidance from counselors once a week (look at the timetable below) without making an appointment. All the guides speak also Finnish and English. The service is free, confidential and open to everyone regardless of their background and reasons for immigrating to Finland.
