Enter Finland for Employers
If your employee applies for a residence permit online, you can supplement the application with information about the employment and your company in the Enter Finland for Employers service as well as pay the application on behalf of the employee. You can follow the processing of the employee’s application in Enter Finland without the need to queue for our telephone service.
To make sure that you have the right to handle matters online for your company, we use the service Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
If the employee has more than one employer, only one of them can use the Enter Finland for Employers service. Other employers have to submit the necessary attachments on paper.
Watch our webinar about Enter Finland for employers.
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).
To find out where the employee announcement can be found in Enter Finland, see our Enter Finland for Employers webinar.
If you are unable to use Enter Finland for Employers, fill in the form TEM 0.54 and send it to a 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.
