Residence Permit Type for Doctoral Students

Post by d_z » Sat Sep 12, 2020 11:06 am

Hi all,

I would like to ask are the residence permits for employed doctoral students (researchers, OLE_TUT) all "A" permits now? Even for the 1st permit?

As I checked on this site, many PhDs said their 1st permit was "B" for 1 year, some of them even got another "B" for the 2nd one.

However I also found a piece of news which said from May 2018 all researchers would be granted continuous residence permit, i.e. "A" permit, from the 1st application and the period would be 2 years.

I am planing to study in PhD level and settle in Finland, so these info are helpful for me. Anyone knows is this news accurate, and what the situations going on actually?

Many thanks in advance!

They are.

“ Oleskelulupa myönnetään jatkuvana kahdeksi vuodeksi tai enintään sopimuksen voimassaoloajaksi, jos sopimus on voimassa alle kaksi vuotta. Jatko-oleskelulupa myönnetään enintään neljäksi vuodeksi.”

This might depend on the durations of the employment contracts.

You will fall back to B if you need an RP for job search after completing your PhD.

Your university would be the best place to ask.
