Re: Do I need YEL insurance?

No, YEL is about work you do. An easy way to understand is, how much would you be getting as salary, if you do that job as an employee. So if you don't do any work, your YEL would be 0. If you start working and start getting some money, you can hold it out till it passes 8k limit but only with 14k ...

So you can go to Germany and bring back a microwave oven or car boot full of groceries and bring it back to Finland tax free but buying a car will mean Finnish import tax.
While the practical effect is often the same, it’s not a tax on import but adding the vehicle to the registry.

Re: Finnish people's CEFR scores

For most other Finns the grades they were given in earlier years of school are the best data that is available. And it's worth not...

Re: REJOINDER TO RECOMMENDATION OF DEPORTATION

Does anyone have any information about this subject? If you mean the questions that're asked when you first submit the application, just choose "yes" or "accept". You can't really refuse it because it's basically telling you if the permit is rejected you'd have to leave. One doe...
