Multilingual info Mainio

During the pandemic: Mainio's walk-in services remain closed until further notice. We only accept customers in International House Tampere by appointment. However, advice via phone, emails and through ‘Neuvoo’ app continues according to the timetable. If you want face-to-face counseling, you must schedule an appointment in advance with your language advisor.

Multi-lingual information and guidance services of the City of Tampere take place near the railway station. Customers are served in 16 different languages by advisors, all of whom also speak Finnish.

Services are available for all immigrants who wish to seek information and advice in their own language in different topics of everyday life. At the Multilingual info Mainio, the customer can ask anything about living, working and studying in Tampere. Mainio's advisors can help in untangling Finnish documents or official correspondence, filling in different forms and applications, or making appointments by phone for example for a doctor. Any question or topic is welcome!

Upon request, Mainio's advisor may accompany a customer on separate visits to run necessary errands in town. These appointments are agreed on before hand with the advisor.

Customers do not need to inform about their visits in advance, but can come to us at any time. Group visits or greeting calls to the Info Centre should be agreed upon in advance!

The advisors can be contacted by phone. The service is free of charge.
