Income limit for residence permit for an employed person

The Government aims to promote work-based immigration in order to provide Finland with labour suitable for its needs. At the same time, Finland must ensure that immigrating is easy and responsible. 

An income limit of EUR 1,600 will be set for the residence permit for an employed person. The objective is to ensure that people coming to work in Finland receive a pay they can live on. In addition, the income limit will support the aim of increasing full-time employment in Finland.

The government proposal was circulated for comments from 20.12.2023 to 31.1.2024.
