RP for work for non EU-Citizen

Post by Jmichaelstinnett » Fri Dec 03, 2021 8:52 am

Hello. I’m an American. Living in Helsinki Finland. I’m looking for work but the non-EU hurdles for work seem difficult. Are jobs for restaurant, cleaning, warehouse work etc occupations my rp application would be denied for? A local rep for a non profit that helps immigrants told me as much recently. It’s hard to understand that to be true. I’ve no alternative but to find a way to stay here. And I’m in need of earning very much. Please provide me any helpful input or links etc if you can.

Thanks in advance for your time.
Best wishes with a whole lotta kiitos

For a non-specialist residence permit on the basis of work, there is a partial decision by the employment office whether the job the alien applies for could instead be done by an unemployed person.

It is only logical that the government does not want to grant a residence permit while paying unemployment benefits to another person who could do the job instead.

Which is not even relevant, since you are unlikely to get any job offered:

Jobs that do not require working in Finnish are rare.
Why would anyone make you a binding offer for such an employment, keeping the job open during the 4 months you are waiting for a decision on the RP?
There is no lack of foreigners in Finland who would be glad to start working in such a job immediately, like few of the workers in the gig economy would pass on such a rare opportunity for long-term employment.

Construction and cleaning are currently listed for automatic approval.

Otherwise they need to follow this process: "Työnantajan on julkaistava ilmoitus avoimesta työpaikasta TE-toimiston www.te-palvelut.fi –sivuille vähintään kahdeksi (2) viikoksi, jotta voidaan selvittää, onko tehtävään saatavissa työvoimaa työmarkkinoilta. "
