ixthus wrote:Guys one more question, in general, How are Finnish people about foreigners? please dont get offended by the question, I have met two Finnish people on my life and they were awesome people, and we didnt have a problem when we went to Tampere, but after reading a few post in this forum I started to be concern about it as my wife is Brazilian black, so you can tell miles away she is not Finnish , Is this a known issue? or what I read it was just a few ignorants trying to make themselves look bad and its better just to ignorer them.

Thanks for your advice guys

Normally the absolute minimum requirement to moving here is that you at least have a job first, or that you speak Finnish.
Kutittaa wrote:Lastly, your wife has no real right to stay here. She is not EU, she is not Finnish and she speaks no Finnish. Because you aren't Finnish she can't be a family member. She could apply to study or something, I don't know. Pretty much what anyone tells anyone around here is "If you aren't EU you get 3 months to marry someone who is Finnish or you'll be out on your ass like everyone else".

What rights does she have then if she's married to an EU national?
