what's your advice for someone coming into finland through germany and staying back in finland. Also, how easy is getting a work permit there?

If I have my way, I would choose Germany over Finland for obvious reasons, because even Finns admire Germans as they are bigger brothers ...because my guys who are students there change jobs all the time and seem to be doing very well. As for work permit, I think those with menial jobs here use that route to secure it.

Good to know, i believe it will be a starting point since one is not coming for studies. And about germany, i generally heard its tougher if you are not dere on studies as one can hardly get jobs if you dont understand n speak their language.

Secret: people all over europe work under the table before papers fall out, but circumstances differ...anyways, download Duolingo app and use your free time to learn the basics so that you can enter the system quicker in terms of communication.

I cannot specify but hold as much as you can in order to sustain before you get a job. Finally, they will observe your account wella before issuing you RP or visa

Yes work permit is needed....95% of them came via school, so if you are ready, application rounds open again in December.

.but I'm planning on moving to Ukraine and then after like 2yrs from there enter Finland for studies and hustle ....so what do u think
Ukraine is the last place you should think of travelling to.
though it is possible to smuggle into Poland from there but it is very hard to get schegen visa from Ukraine except for study though

Ukraine is tough...I have few Ukr friends here in Finland working in farms mostly, they complain how shitty it is, I confirmed it when my Naija friend here in Finland sent 300euros to his cousin in Ukraine to pay his rent....If you can rugged your way into Poland, which is close, then Germany if you can, it is better

I think if you are a footballer or so, it is easier there, because even lower leagues will feed you and provide accomodation and pay some little upkeep fee...Most students and hustlers there sef dey press, if not, OYO.

No oh he is not in Kiev...perhaps, but like I said before all my friends are Ukrainians(livelier people compared to Finns), and they have a large community here in Finland and tell me a lot about their country, if you have a better choice pick it over Ukraine

I´m not sure students can get credit cards, hopefully more legends in Finland can come and throw more light on this...Vaasa and Jyväskylä are other nice cities too, and of course, Seinäjoki...
