Embassy of Finland, Washington, DC provides extensive information about  important things for Americans through the website Finland and United States of America. It includes such topics as current affairs, travel and services, and even a course in the Finnish language.

For Finns and dual citizens, a good source of information is Suomi Seura (Finland Society)

“The Finland Society is an expert on Finnish “expatriatism.” We have members almost in 60 countries. We offer counseling for those moving and living overseas or returning to Finland.


We publish the magazine Finland Bridge and provide information on current themes concerning expatriate Finns. The Finland Society’s task is to ensure that Finnish expatriates are taken into account in public debate and decision-making in Finland.


We distribute grants to Finnish expatriate communities and media.
Finland-Society has the Finnish Expatriate Parliament (FEP). Thanks to the FEP’s initiatives, we have reached goals such as dual citizenship and absentee voting for expatriate Finns. As a member of the Finland Society, you would receive many valuable benefits.”
