The new Finnish Startup Permit attracted interest particularly from technology professionals during its first year

A year ago, Business Finland and the Finnish Immigration Service established a new application process for start-up entrepreneurs coming to Finland from outside the European Union. During the first year of operation, Business Finland received more than a hundred requests for an eligibility statement. A positive statement was given on 34 of them, and the Finnish Immigration Service has granted 23 Finnish Startup Permits.
