Do I need a home insurance – To receive the keys you need to present a valid Finnish home insurance. The insurance also needs to mention that it covers the damage in the address in Lärkan where you will be living. If you do not already have an insurance, book an appointment with OP (Vaasan Osuuspankki local bank/insurance company) before you arrive and arrange the insurance with them. Bring means of payment and proof of your identification with you to the meeting with them.
