Over 14,000 decisions for seasonal workers – our seasonal work bulletin is no longer updated regularly for the time being
This year, the Finnish Immigration Service has issued 12,795 certificates for seasonal work by 6 September 2021. The total number of decisions concerning certificates for seasonal work is 13,077. In total, 1,413 seasonal workers have received a residence permit for seasonal work, and the total number of decisions is 1,502.
The peak season for seasonal work is now over. That is why our seasonal work bulletin is no longer updated every week for the time being.
Follow the processing of your application easily online
You can easily follow the processing of your application online:
- When you apply for a residence permit for seasonal work in Enter Finland, you can follow the processing of your application in the online service.

We can only inform the applicant of the decision. If you are an employer of a seasonal worker, you should ask you employee to inform you of the decision.
We decide applications related to seasonal work in the order they have been submitted. However, we take into account the starting date of the employment, if the application is submitted well in advance of that date. We attempt to process applications submitted for the same employer at the same time.
