Situation of applications for seasonal work permits and certificates on 9 May 2021

12.5.2021 15.20

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. We attempt to process applications submitted for the same employer at the same time.

You can easily follow the processing of your application online 

We publish a weekly update on the processing queue for seasonal work permits and certificates.

There is no need to ask about the status of your application by phone, because our customer service does not have more detailed information than what you can find in the update. When you apply for a seasonal work permit or certificate in Enter Finland, you can also follow the processing of your application in the online service. Submitting your application online enables a faster processing of the application. 

If you are applying for a residence permit for seasonal work, you can also check your place in the processing queue by asking our chatbot Kamu. For more information, see the page migri.fi/en/chat1

A few applications in the queues may be older.
