Enter Finland for employers

If an employee of yours is applying for a residence permit in the e-service, you can submit information on the work in question and your company in the Enter Finland for employers, and pay for the application on behalf of the employee. You can also digitally authorize another person to act on your behalf in Enter Finland. The person in question does not need to be employed by the same employer. He or she can also represent a third party.

To be sure that you have the right to handle matters online for your company, we use the service Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.

You can use Enter Finland for Employers even if you have not previously used our e-service. However, you will not see the status of previously submitted applications. You cannot use the service if the ground for an application is multiple employments or if the employer or client does not have a business identity code.
