However, if the matter requires you to visit us in person, book an appointment to our service location in advance at or call the service-specific customer service number. This way you will avoid unnecessary waiting at our customer service facilities.

What is going on?

The Joensuu office building is included in the renewal of the central government service and premises network. The aim of the project is to centralise central government in-person services to joint service points during the 2020s. At the same time, the central government’s use of premises will be made more efficient as agencies move to shared office spaces. Changes in Joensuu have not yet been completed, and only some authorities offer their services at joint customer service points for now. The Joensuu office building’s services and premises will be improved over the next few years.
