New residents of Kuopio, Siilinjärvi, Lapinlahti and Leppävirta receive a personalized postcard within approximately 1-2 months from the date they move in. The printing house obtains address data from the Population Register Centre once a month, and therefore there may be a slight delay in the arrival of the card to the new addresses. The card directs receivers to www.kuopionalue.fi website for information about the new home municipality and its services and benefits available to the Welcome Card user. The website also contains a questionnaire for new residents (in Finnish).
