“The relocation service aids the recruitment process as well as employees’ integration in the new country. A good relocation service is a competitive advantage for an employer that recruits internationally. The relocation process takes a lot of time and buying it is a cost and resource efficient option.
We have had a good co-operation with Barona. The service packages are sensibly developed and priced. We especially appreciate that they don’t stop before the job is done.”
Esa Johnsson, Head of Global Mobility at Outotec
“A good relocation experience is one of the key factors in ensuring that the newly hired talent will be able to start without any extra hassle. Relocation requires a lot of knowledge of bureaucracy and practical matters.
A good partner knows how things should be handled and can answer both our and our employees' questions. Our employees have experienced that Barona knows how relocation should be done properly and professionally."
Terhi Norokorpi, Office Manager at Holvi
“I was lucky to be offered a job in Finland. As part of my relocation package I was offered the services from Barona. Since the beginning of my contact with Barona until the moment I landed, everything was all nicely and efficiently organized and we finished all local registrations.
Barona’s team handled everything in a smooth and professional way. I would overall recommend Barona for any newcomer. They can help instantly to get you going, help you settle down here and you can quickly start exploring your new Finnish life.”
Mohamed Riyaz Shahinsha, Outotec
“When I was offered a job in Finland, I did a lot of research about Helsinki and the Finnish Culture. I was excited about the new chapter in my life and starting a new position. After I moved to Finland, things went beyond my expectations from how clean and beautiful the nature is to Finnish living style and the how hospitable the people are.
From the beginning of my relocation process, Barona Relocation was very helpful. It feels like I had a close friend who knows all the practicalities I must do to have a smooth relocation to Finland and helped me out through it. I think without help of Barona it might have took a lot to understand how things should be done.”
Pouria Maleki, RELEX Solutions
“We moved to Helsinki from Cape Town, South Africa in August 2019. Barona was excellent in helping us prepare both our visas, ensuring that all our documentation was correctly completed. It took a lot of stress off of us in such a stressful time! Once we arrived in Helsinki, Barona once again helped us immensely - ensuring that we got ourselves registered for everything that we needed to. This was again a big help! We definitely could not have done it without Barona, especially as we had no idea what to do or expect.
Moving to Finland has been an amazing experience, and we are very excited to live here! Barona was instrumental in making sure our immigration went as smoothly as possible, we are very grateful for their help and advice. Always ready to answer whatever questions we had, and always helpful and friendly.”

“We did not pay a lot of attention on how lucky we were having Tatiana as a relocation consultant. But after a few stories from our friends who had moved to Helsinki after us and had a lot of problems and delays we realized how easy and comfortable was the paper process and renting an apartment with her help. Especially in December when all the things usually move very slow.
After these 10 months we are happy to live in Helsinki. It is very green, lovely and cozy city with nice architecture, a lot of parks and sea around. This city is perfect for work-life balance. The weather is much better than it is mentioned in different reviews and we have a lot of fun outside during the weekends and evenings after work. There are also a lot of interesting destinations near Helsinki, so we can spend weekends actively.”
Andrey and Marina, Smartly.io
“Relocation services are definitely needed in order to attract skilled people from foreign countries. As a small company, we don’t have the bandwidth to try and learn all the details that are needed to successfully complete all the administrative work that is needed in relocation. If you make a small mistake, that can cost you precious calendar time. That’s why it’s better that someone, who has done it many times before, is doing it.
For us, choosing Barona Relocation was a natural choice, because we work closely with Barona otherwise as well. The service package was also a good fit for our need and affordable. What I appreciated the most was the continuous and proactive discussion with both the new employee and me. The pro-activity and clarity of the entire process was great. We have only had one relocated employee and he was very happy about the service. It was a huge help for him to get all the administrative things cleared out with the authorities in 1-2 days, and then with the apartment search afterwards.”
Sami Niemelä, CEO at D2 Solutions
