Hiring the first employee from outside the EU

Post by albacore » Fri Nov 13, 2020 8:49 pm

Hi,

Can I just register an OY and right away hire someone from outside the EU based on the specialist resident permit? (an IT expert)

Or the company needs some proven record of profitability?

Profitability is not required. The employer just needs to be able take care of employer duties (healthcare, insurances etc).

You started the thread asking about specialist permits. That page is the general employee application. Which one are you interested in?
