A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at:

I'm interested in relocating to Finland and imagine I'd only be there on a Visa for a while. Will my children be able to go to school during that time? They speak only English and are middle school age in the states.
mmasters replied most recently with:
So, do you still have this question? There are very few schools who teach in Engish - a couple private schools in Helsinki and Tampere. If you don't enroll your kids in a private school, then they will have to go to public school and they will have to learn Finnish. You can't live in Finland on a Visa unless it is a student visa or a work permit. You apply through the Finnish consulate in the country where you reside. Very few visas are granted unless you have a job offer, are a student, or married to a Finn.

Hi, I have a question I would like ask everyone on here, as I am in a situation that could change my life. I am 26 years old ( will turn 26 in two weeks) im currently living in the united kingdom, I was born here, I have very good friends in Finland and have been there twice already ( vaala and Oulu) I love the country and everything about it, I have known my Finnish friends for 4 years now and I can comfortably say that they are like family to me, they have helped me with a lot of things in my life. Let's get to the point, I have been thinking about moving to Finland, possibly joensuu, I met a girl there when I visited Finland for the second time, we are thinking about getting married ( not 100% sure yet but its a high possibility, I'm currently living at home with my parents because of lack of unemployment and i suffer from severe depression ( which is being treated at the moment) I have been living in the UK all my life and I'm really not happy here, I have no good friends, no hope for anything, I hate the people ( no offence to any Brits on here) but this is my opinion, I'm miserable and fed up and on the verge of giving up, I know if I moved to Finland it would change me in so many ways, I know there would be a culture shock and a lot of things to adjust to, but I will fight for that, I am determined, I have a 10 year passport, I'm a EU citizen so I dont need a visa, in terms of becoming a permanent resident in Finland, what do I need to do? I know marriage will entitle me to that ( and I'm not marrying just for that, we do like each other) but if it helps its a bonus, I have around 2100 in my bank and I know apartments there can be expensive obviously depending on where you live, but she lives in joensuu and she wouldnt be able to travel anywhere else, how long would it take to qualify for kela benefits? ( to support myself as I hardly have enough money to live off for a few months,( i am not a benefit scrounger, I will work hard to find any kind of work and do my best to learn the Finnish language which I know is very difficult, I am just worried about money that will last me until I qualify for kela benefits, if anyone can help and give me some advice and guidance it would be much appreciated, I need to know the process of applying for benefits, registering at a police station, and anything else that is needed. Regards Nathan

Hello, thanks for the reply, i will look at the information you sent me, i just want to ask you if marriage would give me the right to permanent residency in finland. as i would be there for longer than 3 months.
