Extension of the permanent permit

Post by umihotaru » Fri Nov 23, 2018 4:45 pm

Hello there,
I have small question regards my extension of the residence permit.
Currently, I have A type permits based Working Employment for four years and which is valid till August, 2019. Since I have laid off and received KELA unemployment and General housing benefit since this summer. Thus, will I be able to extend to permanent residence permit before current residence expired in case if I can not find the proper job before applying?
Are the benefits by KELA enough to prove for income support to apply new permanent permit?
Thank you in advance.

Acording to Migri you cannot apply for a new permit if the conditions that granted the first permit are no longer valid and you must leave Finland when the permit expires at the latest: https://migri.fi/en/end-of-employment

Also, when applying for permanent residents the requirements must still be satisfied, so if you don't have a job you are not satisfying the requirements: https://migri.fi/en/permanent-residence-permit

For what I have understood, social services are not considered as income, and the source of income is through gainfull income, that means salaries: https://migri.fi/en/working-in-finland/ ... equirement

Good look
