End of employment

If you have been granted a residence permit on the basis of work and your employment ends, you need to find a new job. In many cases, you can continue your stay in Finland with the same residence permit even though you change jobs. In some cases, you must however apply for a new residence permit.

If your employment has ended and you cannot find a new job, you must leave Finland when your residence permit expires, at the latest.
