Three years ago my husband and I decided to migrate to Europe. Advertisement about immigration to Finland was among immigration options and I was amazed that it was also possible to immigrate there! I contacted Fintegra company, clouded by uncertainty, how can one just entrust their future and money to unknown people, without any recommendations But after a conversation with the Company Director Tatiana, all my fears disappeared immediately, because I got reasonable and consistent answers to all my questions, which is obviously very important at making the decision.
In search of an opportunity to move to any wealthy country, I saw an advertisement of Fintegra Company. Its site contained a lot of interesting information about Finland. Then the scheme was standard: call order, confidence in the made choice, an invitation to obtain a visa from Fintegra, consultation, service contract and waiting for a Residence Permit… Without waiting for the decision of the migration service, the company specialists also filed documents in the name of my wife and children. I am satisfied with the result in full. Thanks to Fintegra team!
Five years ago our family relied on Fintegra at immigration to Finland. Tatyana and her colleagues helped us in all issues, from the very beginning till granting of the Finnish citizenship. When one comes to another country, a lot of questions arise, Fintegra always answered all our questions and helped us everywhere (visiting a doctor, a conversation with a teacher, help in receipt of allowance, registration for language courses). And still, if any difficulties arise, we always ask qualified specialists from Fintegra for help.
