I've read most of the threads in the forum related to Residence permit applications. But I still have a few doubts.
My situation is the next:
I am an non-EU national, my husband is EU national (czech). We got married last November (2012), and I got a 5 years residence permit here in czech republic.
Now I got accepted into Oulu UAS (studies start on August 28th). I already asked to migri information email about what should I do, either apply for a student residence permit or a residence permit based on family ties.
They answered me the next:
University sent me enrollment form. In this one clearly states the next:A residence card is issued to family members of EU citizens. You can apply for it at the local police station in Finland at the same time as your husband registers his residence.
The problem is that I don't know how long would it take for me to have the residence permit? or residence card?Non-EU/EEA citizens have to possess a valid residence permit when entering the school.
in Migri page says that you can't get a residence card without a residence permit. So I don't understand exactly what I should apply for at police station in Finland.
Also, I wanted to check about the health insurance. I didn't see anything related to it on the application for residence permit based on family ties.
So I'm wondering if it isn't necessary for this application? I sent a mail to Migri again, but got no response about this.
Because I was wondering if I could get the student health insurance that would complemented because of my length of studies in Finland (4 years bachelor degree).
I am quite confused at this point about what do we need to do.
If you have some useful information, I would be very thankful.
