work residence permit finland

Post by misbahwali » Sun Apr 26, 2020 9:25 pm

Hi,

I am student in Finland, my home country is Pakistan. I got student residence permit in January 2020. my question is, I have not more interest in studies. I am earning very well as freelancer. I have three US clients. I am getting very good monthly salary. Can I register myself in Finland as freelancer ? can I get work residence permit or any other type of residence permit without completing degree. Thank you

Many people who quit their studies for quick money regret it later.

How are you currently paying Finnish taxes on your worldwide income?
As (student) resident of Finland you have to do that.

Why do you need a residence permit for Finland for your work when all your clients are in the US?
Finland does not have a "sufficient funds" residence permit, and "I earn money on the internet" does not mean that every country in the world will grant you a residence permit.

"Freelancer with clients from abroad" is not something Migri easily approves an RP for.

To get a work residence permit, your work must require you to be present in Finland. Freelance with clients abroad does not satisfy that requirement.
