In December - March, the Embassy is usually overloaded with applications. We recommend applying for a seasonal / other work permit in advance during the year. An application for a work permit can be submitted as soon as you have the necessary documents. The rule "not earlier than three months before the start of work" applies only to visa applicants.
During the Christmas holidays from 16 December 2019 to 07 January 2020 the Embassy will not accept an application for a residence permit in Finland.
