Press release

On our website you can now find information directed especially for employers. We have assembled a new To the employer page, where you can find information for employers who are employing or wanting to employ foreigners from outside the EU/EEA area.

On our new page the employer can get a quick look at

  • the role of the employer in the permit process
  • the employer’s obligations.

In addition to the Finnish Immigration Service, a lot of other officials have a part to play in the employment of foreigners. That is why we have assembled a list of useful links to other officials’ websites, too.

A more accurate look at how a person coming to work in Finland applies for a residence permit, and the different types of rights to work on different residence permits, can be found in the Working in Finland pages at These contents have been written from the point of view of the employee, but they contain useful information also for the employer.
