The act of moving to another country is one that you will need to dedicate your time and efforts to. The immigration laws held by a foreign nation are all different from one another so the first thing you must do is become acquainted with these laws and their restrictions. The best way to go about seeking immigration permissions and guidance is by hiring a migration agent. They will help you fulfill your obligations, apply for the proper visas and permits, and offer their expertise and assistance wherever they can in the process of your relocation.

The hardest part of immigration is applying for the right citizenship rights, permits and visas. If you do not apply for the right permissions into the country, you may become exempt or find that the process of earning the proper residency permissions takes longer than it should. As stated above, a migration agent will help tremendously. Nevertheless, you can always call the Embassy of Finland for more information. You can also learn more by reading the information below.

Information Regarding the Different Types of Citizenships, Permits and Visas for Finland

To enter the nation of Finland, you can do so with a passport as long as you intend on leaving before or after the 90 day period that is allotted under this type of entrance. Once you find work or if you are breaching the time allotted, you will need to apply for residency according to your circumstances. You are also not permitted to buy or rent housing until residency is issued.

A double-entry visa- allows entry to the Schengen area twice for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period.

Multiple-entry visa- is granted for several visits to the Schengen area. The total duration of the stay is the number of days stated on the visa, however being a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period.

Finland Residence Permit and What It Entails

A residence permit may be granted to those moving with family in Finland, employment or studies, which are of Finnish descent, return migration, on humanitarian grounds or for other exceptional reasons. Those who have earned a residence permit may live and travel in Finland and leave the country and come back during the validity of the residence permit. For those who have a worker’s residence permit, they’re able to seek employment in the nation.

There are several types of residence permits including worker’s, fixed term, long term, short stay and student residence permits. Not all of them allow you to continue living and working in Finland so make sure you obtain the correct permit. Here is what you will need when you go to apply for a permit:

  • Photo (max. 6 months old)
  • Supporting documents
  • Prepaid FedEx/DHL/UPS envelope
  • Fee

Of course, you’ll also likely need most of the same documentation and forms of proof that you do to obtain a visa in Finland. You will also need to show up to apply for the residence permit in person. If you file for residency online, you may be asked to make an appearance with the VFS Global Center.

Satisfied Customers

“I would just like to thank you for an excellent job in moving my car cross country. I will be using you again in the future, and have recommended you to others that will be moving cars shortly. Once again it was a pleasure to do business with you, and thanks again.”

“Most of the time people take the time to write a complaint letter. I am very happy with your service so far so I thought I would write and tell you. In today's world where mediocre service is the norm your company has proved your commitment to customer service is far above that of your competitors. I have not received my car yet but I felt compelled to write this email and commend A-1 Autotransport for the job well done thus far. Here are some points I would like to make. Your dispatcher Marie Ferguson upgraded my cars transportation, at no extra cost, to an enclosed transporter. My car is a rare SS Camaro Convertible with only 4,000 miles and is perfect in every way. I can't tell you how much I appreciate her concern for my cars safety. When the seller of the car was a little on the uncooperative side your agents offered to pick the car up where it was at the sellers residence. Again at no extra cost to me. The seller of the car called me after the car was picked up and mentioned how professional the driver was and how he moved cars off the transporter to put my car in the best location for it's long ride to Oregon. When I heard that I felt reassured I had chosen the right company to move my car. The system you have to track the progress is really fun. It took me a little while to figure it out but I had a blast watching the progress. Your driver didn't waste any time. The car was picked up in Ft Lauderdale Florida on Tuesday evening and was in Watsonville California Saturday afternoon. Great Job! I thought I might hear from you Sunday to arrange pick up of my car, most likely I hear from you Monday morning. Thank you again for all you folks have done for me. I would be happy to recommend your service to anyone who asks. Best Regards, Brian Hewgill”

“I transported my car to North Dakota just in time for my grandson’s birthday. I hardly drive anymore and it was getting rusty for no reason. I was glad to finally get it on the road, one less headache to worry about. I got A1 Auto Transport to do the actual transport after finding their website on Google. I was very impressed by how knowledgeable they were, and after sending them a quote request using their form, a reply came soon after. It seemed reasonable, so I arranged for the transport. The car had to get to North Dakota by next Friday, in time for the birthday party, and they assured me it wouldn’t be a problem. On Tuesday, a truck arrived to pick it up. The street was a bit narrow, but he got it in there anyway. Big thanks for that! The driver was very polite and drove the car onto the ramp himself which was a big help. I signed a couple papers and it was on its way. It arrived on Wednesday, but the company was kind enough to watch over it until Friday, when they delivered it right in the middle of the party. My grandson was so happy. He says I’m the coolest.”

“I just want to thank you and your staff, especially Sherrie, for assisting with the safe transport of our vehicle. It was handled promptly and efficiently, by competent distributors. Everything went exactly as Sherrie described the process and we received the car without difficulty or damage. I was enormously pleased with your cost, timeliness, and careful handling. Thank you very much for your service and help.”

“This is Kellie from American Van Lines World Wide Moving Inc, I have been working with Cherie for months and she is very pleasant to work with. She has a great since of urgency and also follows up with all of my corporate accounts, she also takes great pride in getting addition information to my customers immediatly. I believe she is a great asset to your organization and will continue to build strong relationships with companies like ours. Thank you Cherie. ”
