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;

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!
