 In addition, one must pay the state fee in the Consular Department of the Finnish Embassy: €550 for the applicant, reunified spouse — €450, child under 18 — €230.

Part of the necessary measures can be carried out remotely, by phone and mail. Only when opening an account for a Finnish company in a Finnish bank, the personal presence of the founders is required.

Usually, the package of documents is filed for registration with consular departments in the country of residence. The response is awaited at the same place. At the request of the client, we can organize the submission of documents and waiting for a decision on granting the Residence Permit in Finland (only with agreement of the Service provider, depends on your plans). The Residence Permit is extended in 6-7 months in the police department at the place of registration in Finland.

The Residence Permit is granted through the Migration Department based on verification and processing of your documents. On average, the decision is made in 6-10 months; during this period, citizens and residents are already entitled to stay in Finland with the long-term visa. Upon receipt of the Residence Permit, all European countries are open for you for one year. Usually, in a year the Residence Permit is extended for 1-4 years.

Minimum account activity of the company should be sufficient to cover:

1. Operating expenses of the company;

2. Payment of salary to the director (the person, who applies for the Residence Permit) min. €1,300 after taxes;

3. Payroll taxes — min. €300 per month for the person, who applies for the Residence Permit.

Finnish banks pay special attention to foreigners.

The service of registration of a joint stock company (Оy — osakeyhtiö) costs 4,000€ — this is the payment for our services. The charter capital from €2,500 is added to that payment — it can be used/debited after the registration at your own discretion. State registration fee is €380.

Citizens of any state can open a company, however, in addition to the main founder (you), there must be a Finnish resident within the board – we help in selection and controlling them. Further on the basis of the company activities, foreign founders can obtain a residence permit in Finland and a social insurance number — then one can replace our temporary member of the board with the main founder who has already been granted an official status in Finland.

It is possible to open a company branch or a subsidiary in Finland. Such activity includes special paperwork management and registration peculiarities. We are experts in such types of registration, please, apply!

Anna Pertsina

Three years ago my husband and I decided to migrate to Europe. Advertisement about immigration to Finland was among immigration options and I was amazed that it was also possible to immigrate there! I contacted Fintegra company, clouded by uncertainty, how can one just entrust their future and money to unknown people, without any recommendations But after a conversation with the Company Director Tatiana, all my fears disappeared immediately, because I got reasonable and consistent answers to all my questions, which is obviously very important at making the decision.

In search of an opportunity to move to any wealthy country, I saw an advertisement of Fintegra Company. Its site contained a lot of interesting information about Finland. Then the scheme was standard: call order, confidence in the made choice, an invitation to obtain a visa from Fintegra, consultation, service contract and waiting for a Residence Permit… Without waiting for the decision of the migration service, the company specialists also filed documents in the name of my wife and children. I am satisfied with the result in full. Thanks to Fintegra team!

Five years ago our family relied on Fintegra at immigration to Finland. Tatyana and her colleagues helped us in all issues, from the very beginning till granting of the Finnish citizenship. When one comes to another country, a lot of questions arise, Fintegra always answered all our questions and helped us everywhere (visiting a doctor, a conversation with a teacher, help in receipt of allowance, registration for language courses). And still, if any difficulties arise, we always ask qualified specialists from Fintegra for help.
