Residence permit application for work in the field of mass media
Apply for a residence permit with this application if you are engaged professionally in the field of mass media and your employer or contractor does not have a place of business in Finland. You must have confirmed employment before you can apply for this permit.
You can apply for this permit if you work as a correspondent, journalist or photographer, for example.
If your employer has obtained employer certification, you can apply for a D visa at the same time as you apply for a residence permit. The D visa allows you to travel to Finland immediately after you have been issued with a residence permit and a D visa sticker has been attached to your passport. Read more about the D visa.
Your spouse and children can apply for a D visa if they are applying for a residence permit on the basis of family ties.
