Finland is one of the world’s leading destinations for migrate overseas.

The Finland government is encouraging immigrants to come and settle in the country to meet this shortage. In fact, the country wants nearly 1 million immigrants in this year and the next so that foreign workers can meet the skill shortage.

Study Opportunity

Studying abroad can help your career open up to multiple possibilities. Employers increasingly prioritize graduates who have foreign experience and education in today’s globalized society.

Many countries offer an Investment or Business Visa to encourage immigrants who have proven experience in running a business and are interested in establishing a business overseas or invest in another country.

  • If you had a continuous residence permit when you arrived in Finland; or if you had a temporary residence permit when you arrived in Finland.

  • If you have been granted a continuous residence permit based on refugee status or subsidiary protection on the day of your admission into Finland.
