Startup Permit

Citizens of EU/EEA member state, Liechtenstein or Switzerland don’t need a special permit to stay in Finland.

For non-EU citizens, a new type of residence permit is proposed for growth or startup entrepreneurs. The aim is to make it easier for entrepreneurs and experts to move to Finland and thereby to promote economic growth and employment. The amendments are scheduled to enter into force as soon as possible. Stay tuned!
