Of course you can get a permit, but you have to qualify, usually either by:

-being married to or having a long-term cohabitation history with a Finnish citizen; and/or having a biological child with a Finnish citizen (family connections)

-having professional employment arranged (international recruitment)

-studying or doing graduate research


If you don't have any of those 3 circumstances, they will not likely grant a residency or work permit.

Yes, my first answer is always "don't" :mrgreen:

OK, questions back on "move to Finland"
a) why?
b) are you sure you want to?
c) are you crazy enough to survive the winters without going crazy?
d) do you have a good excuse (work/studying/girlfriend/ice hockey/tango)?

http://www.uvi.fi has pdf-files on residence permits etc. that explain the procedure.
The question is not 'can I get', it is 'will they give'.
Cheers, Hank W.

This is what Hank looked like before he moved back to Finland:

This is how much he has changed since moving back to Finland:

This is an actual digital picture from the last pub crawl we were on!

we are all slowly changing to look like him....even the women.... :wink:

Hola pariente.

Bueno, cual es la razon porque la que queres venir aqui?? Yo vine por estudiar .. ahora cuando vayas a sacar tu visa tienes que tener algo que hacer aqui.

Si eres estudiante, tienes que llevar la aceptacion de la escuela despues de hacer el examen de admision, y un cuenta de banco que tengas 6000 euros. una vez estando aqui, cada año tienes que presentar una cuenta de banco finlandes, que tengas 6000€

Si te casaste con una finlandesa, tienes que haber estado casado por 2 años al menos y hacer la aplicacion para tu visa en tu pais. Llevar el certificado de casado, y listo.

Y otra es un trabajo .. tienes que tener un contrato de al menos 2 años, llevas tu contrato a la embajada, hacer el tramite de tu visa y listo. Una vez que tu contrato termine, te tienes que regresar, pero si trabajas por al menos 2 años aqui, puedes depues aplicar para tu residencia permanente.

esta son las maneras mas faciles que yo creo, espero que te sirva, y saludos.
