Finland Immigration Advice

🇫🇮 Finland, (FI)

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.

Brief Descriptions for Each of Finland’s Visas

The visas for Finland that are listed below do not include the visas available to students, study and other specific circumstances.

A single-entry visa- is issued for one journey during which you can stay in the Schengen area for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period.

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.

Airport transit visas- are needed by citizens of certain countries when they are transferring flights between the international parts of the airports without entering the country in question.

To apply for a visa you will need the following:

-  Visa application (available only for the Consulate submission)

-  Photo (max. 6 months old) attached

-  Passport and a passport copy

-  Green Card/ US visa and a copy

-  Employer letter or school letter

-  Hotel reservation and/or invitation letter

-  Flight reservation

-  Bank statements (3 months)

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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
