Entrepreneurship as a secondary occupation

Post by nikitushu » Sun Dec 09, 2018 8:34 pm

Does a non-EU immigrant, possessing a one-year working permit with a restricted field of working, need to apply for other visa/residence permit? I would like to establish a sole proprietorship and work on my business along my primary job.

If it is restricted, yes you need a permit to work as an yrittäjä.

I just found out that under the Aliens Act, an entrepreneur who operates such companies [secondary-ocupation businesses] is considered an employee. I am getting confused...

Yes, you need a permit for an employed Person as an entrepreneur in some cases. I suggest you make an appointment with Migri to discuss your particular situation so that you will not have problems later.
