I can help you make sure that you have the right documents and that the application is properly completed. I also can deal with the authorities on your behalf after the application has been submitted and keep you updated of the progress.

No one can predict the decisions of the permit authorities, but on the basis of the existing regulations and practices, we can jointly find out where you stand.

We make sure to avoid the pitfalls that exist and the mistakes you can make that can cause a rejection.

The first counselling (by phone / email) is free of charge.

In Finland based employers and workers are warmly welcome.

Overseas agencies strictly no thanks.

NB. This is not a recruitment agency.

You must have confirmed employment before you may apply for a worker's residence permit for Finland. Your employer must confirm this information by necessary documents for the immigration authorities. This is usually done in the form of an employment contract.

The Finnish Immigration Service may grant an extended permit even if your income was temporarily lower than required. The lower income must be due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it may last for a maximum of six months.

On 1 February 2021, the Finnish Immigration Service launched a project to speed up and streamline the processing of work-based permits and residence permits for international students. The aim is to issue customers with a work permit on average within a month by 2023.
