No need of residence registering

Post by juanjesusplata » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:32 pm

Hi guys,

I'm EU citizen, and I want to move to Helsinki. I have read that it's possible to go to Finland, without right of residence, for not longer than 3 months. What happens if I stay longer than 3 months? how the government control this? If I want to restart this time, it's enough if I travel back to my country (Spain) for few days and then I come back?

I want to go to find work in Helsinki and I don't know if is going to be enough with this time.

Thank you very much.

Without registering you cannot get a personal identity number. Without that you cannot do anything as you are just a tourist.

It means; no bank account, no reduction on public transportation, no renting a house, no (almost free) medical care, no social support and most importantly no job.
In fact you cannot do anything "official". You will drive your car as a tourist and the car has to leave the country in 3 months, no selling here.
If you have money you can live here for some time to experience life here (but you already know) or look for a job. (the 3 month rule is difficult to check and enforce so they don't bother. ) But as said, you cannot do anything.

Thats not true. I didnt had a personal identity card but still got a bank account with my home country ID.
And you can get jobs without personal identy card too if you are EU citizen

There might be some exceptions, but nowadays banks and employers are very strict because of the tax regulations.
