HELP...four months work permit after graduation

Post by agksam » Wed Apr 18, 2018 11:17 am

Hello,
So I graduated from a UAS and i decided to apply for a work permit. I just got an email yesterday saying I have been granted work permitted for just four months. starting from April to August this year. I do have a work contract which ends in August could that be why I was given a work permit till August.
Regards

The residence permit based on work is valid for the duration of the work contract. If you get another job or your employer extends your comtract, then you can apply for an extended permit.

But i thought as a graduate in Finland one is entitled to atleast one year post school work visa.

Yes but then you need to apply for the work seeker permit, not a work based permit. Usually you get the job seeker permit while on a student permit. It's not clear to me whether you can get it later any more.

The wording is a little unclear but it sounds like after graduation you have two options:

a) one year job seekers permit

Or

b) permit based on a work contract

Seems like migri assumed you took option b. Option a might no longer be available to you since it states you have to apply for this prior to your student permit expiring. I would suggest reading the page I linked below and contacting migri for clarification.
