You must submit an employee announcement if you are employing a person who comes from outside the EU or EEA and already has a valid residence permit and right to work.
Under law, an employer who employs a worker from outside the EU must submit an employee announcement to an Employment and Economic Development Office (TE Office). For more information about the employee announcement, see the website of the TE Services (in Finnish).
If you are unable to use Enter Finland for Employers, fill in the employee announcement paper form and send it to the TE Office.
If your employee is now applying for a residence permit, and you have already added or will add the terms of employment in the employee’s application, you do not need to submit an employee announcement.
