What does seasonal work mean?

It is a work activity that is dependent on the passing of the seasons, i.e. an activity that is tied to a certain time of the year by a recurring event or pattern of events linked to seasonal conditions during which required labour levels are significantly above those necessary for usually ongoing operations. The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs determines a list of sectors of employment which include activities that are dependent on the passing of the seasons in a regulation.

For seasonal work, it is possible to submit an application for a short-stay visa or for a long-stay visa for the purpose of seasonal work. The short-stay visa is issued for a maximum of three (3) months; the long-stay visa is issued for a maximum of six (6) months.

It is not possible to submit an application for a long-term stay for the purpose of seasonal work.

For whom is the visa for the purpose of seasonal work intended?

The visa for the purpose of employment is intended for foreign nationals from all over the world. However, it is not intended for

  • the citizens of Member States of the EU/EEA and Switzerland and
  • their family members-citizens of other states who are holders of the residence card of a family member of an EU/EEA citizen or a citizen of Switzerland or who have applied for the issuance of this card.
