If you were unable to reply to a request for additional information or submit an urgent application between 19 and 24 January 2023 due to technical difficulties in Enter Finland, follow the instructions (pdf).
Always sign in to Enter Finland with the latest version of your web browser and please use one of the following browsers to sign in: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Safari.
If you are applying for an extended permit or renewing your residence permit card or residence card, it is possible for you to avoid visiting a service point to prove your identity. Read more about the requirements: migri.fi/en/identification. Watch our ”Proving your identity without visiting a service point” guide video.
There are two ways to create a user account:
Benefits of using strong identification:
- you log in to Enter Finland using strong identification, meaning that your identity is verified online
- you apply for an extended permit
However, this is not possible in all situations when you apply for an extended permit. When you apply online, Enter Finland will show you whether a personal visit is needed or not. Read more about the requirements: migri.fi/en/identification.
