Extended permit for an employed person
This form is for you if you are applying for an extended fixed-term residence permit for an employed person. You are coming to Finland to work for a Finnish employer or other employer operating in Finland and you have a valid employment contract or you have accepted a binding job offer. A residence permit for an employed person is connected with labour market testing: when the availability of labour force is assessed, the employer must establish if there is available labour force in Finland or within the EU/EEA for the work in question within a reasonable time (section 73(1) of the Aliens Act).
Check that you have all the necessary attachments and information before you begin.
- appendix to worker's residence permit application (TEM 0.54) filled in by the employer
- valid passport
- certificate of salaries paid to you
