Student permit renewal

Post by crypt3d » Wed Jul 05, 2017 4:23 pm

Hi, I study in Vaasa amk. Since May, I have been living in Helsinki. I have a job in Helsinki with permanent contract that earns me more than 560 Euro in a month. Is it possible to renew my student permit with that contract ? As I am a student in Vaasa and not in Helsinki, does a permanent job contract in Helsinki qualify as a means of support ? Looking for responses ASAP. I am panicking hard. And thanks for reading :)

Working in Hki and studying in Vaasa seems very hard to achieve. My first impression is (and that of Migri too I suppose) that you try to avoid the requirements for a RP based on work. I wouldn't be surprised if it was denied.

It is possible as long as you also satisfy the study credit requirements.

I meet the credit requirements. I know that it was possible in the past but as migri has stepped up to make decision on RP extension from Jan of 2017, I am a bit worried.

The legislation for student permits stayed the same.
