The Member States of the European Union (EU), apart from Finland, are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK. The free mobility provisions enjoyed by citizens of EU Member States are also applied to the citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The citizens of those comparable countries are thus equated with EU citizens.
EU citizens may stay in Finland for a maximum of three months without registering their right of residence if they have a valid identity card or passport. EU citizens who reside in Finland for more than three months have to register their right of residence. The registration application is recommended to be done in the e-service Enter Finland. The application should be submitted within three months of the date of entry into Finland.
To register a right of residence, you will need the following:
• your national proof of identity or passport;
• if you are a student, proof that you are enrolled at an educational institution in Finland (= a study certificate) and have sufficient funds and sufficient health insurance coverage (European Health Insurance Card).
Registration of the right of residence requires you to have sufficient income to support yourself. You are not required to have a specific amount of money. Your personal circumstances are taken into account when considering the income requirement.
The registration application is subject to a processing fee. The fee can be paid in the e-service Enter Finland or at the Finnish Immigration Service when submitting your application or proving your identity. After completing your application, book an appointment in the appointment system of the Finnish Immigration Service to prove your identity or to submit your application. Processing an online application will not start until you visit the service point to prove your identity and show your original documents.
