The updated Welcome to Finland guide has been published. The InfoFinland online editorial staff and authorities have worked in collaboration through 2018 to update the outdated information in the old guide. At the time of publication, the guide’s statutory distributors have been given a set of updated instructions for ordering and distributing the guides. Other parties can order the Welcome to Finland card, which contains instructions on how to find the guide on the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment website.
The website previously known as Infopankki has been launched under its new name, InfoFinland. Now the name gives a better idea of what the service is about: providing information about Finland. InfoFinland is available in 12 languages. The number of languages is exceptionally high even globally.
Welcome to Finland is a guide published by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. Its new edition will be out later this year, replacing the already outdated current edition. The publication date of the new edition will be announced later. The instructions for ordering and distributing the guide will be updated, too.
