Fast track: Instructions for employers
An employee who intends to come to Finland can use the fast-track service if they are applying for one of the following residence permits:
- residence permit for persons employed as a specialist
- residence permit for a specialist or manager on the basis of intra-corporate transfer (‘ICT residence permit’)
- EU Blue Card
- residence permit for persons working in top or middle management
With the fast track service, the employee can get a residence permit within 14 days and arrive in Finland immediately after the residence permit has been granted. If your employee is already in Finland, he or she will not be able to apply using the fast track service.
Fast-tracking the application requires that both the employee and the employer use Enter Finland
If your employees use the fast track service, you cannot pay for their applications in Enter Finland. In order to use the fast track service, employees must pay for their applications themselves in Enter Finland before submitting the application.
