 The lawyer is on call between 2 p.m. and  4 p.m. on Mondays. You can call us at another time, and we will call you back as soon as possible. Advice is free of charge.

Our lawyer is present at the Global Clinic during its opening hours. The Global Clinic is a health clinic staffed by volunteer doctors and nurses, located at a secret address. You can  drop by without an appointment.

Our advice is meant for undocumented migrants but also for people who are in an
ambiguous situation regarding their residence permits and for those at risk of
becoming undocumented migrants. Advice is always given confidentially and can even be given anonymously if requested. The Finnish Refugee Advice Centre is not a representative of the authorities and we do not disclose information to the police or other authorities.

We do not take individual cases to court nor do we prepare documents. Our advice is provided free of charge.

Attention!!! We do not give legal counseling on April  17  and  May 1.
