If & when you get income from your side business they could probably see that but I doubt they would ever check unless you gave them cause to do so.

A friend and I set up a start-up a year ago. It hasn't made much but we are finally getting some funding. In the meantime, I started a new full-time job in June and just work on the start-up on weekends. Well, I found out today that this new job doesn't allow you to make money at another job. It was...

Hi, I got some advice a couple of weeks ago about how to proceed with renewing my student permit. Turns out now that I just got a job with a company who wants me to work full time as soon as possible. They know that I am on a student permit that will expire soon (end of December) and they will emplo...

Re: No more interview dates for residence permit renewal

Thank you for all your replies. I have booked a worst-case scenario appointment in Tampere for December. At the worst I'll go visit some friends and explore the city. But I will keep trying to get something closer. Thank you again.

There seems to be no way to even b...
