Work visa advise

Post by mk4224 » Tue Aug 15, 2017 7:30 pm

Hi,

One of my friend got extension of residence permit rejected. He went to lawyer and case kept going and he is almost done with degree now. If he finishes degree, can he apply for work visa which normally every student gets for 1 year after finishing degree? Or, he cannot get 1 year work visa because his extension was rejected?

Thanks

you probably mean a temporary residence permit for seeking work
from the migri pages it seems that the residence permit for studies should be valid when one applies for the permit for seeking work

Please note that you can only be granted an extended permit to look for work if you have a residence permit for studying. (link)

You can apply for a temporary residence permit for seeking work by submitting an application for an extended permit to the Finnish Immigration Service before your residence permit for studying expires. (link, no 25)

Why not ask the lawyer?
