Move to Finland with a tourist visa to hunt for job

Post by mikahil » Thu Mar 30, 2017 1:30 am

I am planning to apply for a tourist visa to Finland to hunt for job, currently I worked in UAE as safety officer and have got professional qualifications as a safety officer. Is there any chances for me to be employed in Finland and how easy will it be to convert my tourist visa to work permit in case if am employed.

Visa is for visiting, residence permit is for residing. If you are non-EU/EEA citizen, you must have a job before you move to Finland. So better hunt the job and do interviews from UAE, then _maybe_ visit for another interview and possible signing of contract with visa and _then_ apply for RP form UAE. Visas cannot be converted to anything. RP must be applied from abroad.
