Planning a holiday abroad? Make sure your residence permit card is valid
Migri: If you are planning a holiday abroad, make sure to check that your residence permit card is valid. If
you are waiting for a new residence permit card or if the Finnish
Immigration Service is processing your residence permit application, you
should wait until your card arrives before travelling.
It is best not to make any travel reservations before you have received your residence permit card. We do not recommend travelling without a valid residence permit and residence permit card.
To be able to make travel arrangements knowing that your permit will be valid for the duration of the whole trip, you should also submit your permit extension application in good time. Apply for permit extension before your previous permit expires.
