Residence permit application for a consultant
Apply for a residence permit with this application if you work as a consultant.
You must have confirmed employment before you can apply for this permit. Your work may last for a maximum of one year. To work longer than that, you need to apply for a residence permit for an employed person.
If your employer has obtained employer certification, you can apply for a D visa at the same time as you apply for a residence permit. The D visa allows you to travel to Finland immediately after you have been issued with a residence permit and a D visa sticker has been attached to your passport. Read more about the D visa.
Your spouse and children can apply for a D visa if they are applying for a residence permit on the basis of family ties.
