Travel while application is processed

Post by ShadowEn » Thu Oct 27, 2016 3:30 pm

Hi all.

I submitted my student residence permit extension application in June, 2016. They asked me to send updated bank statements in October,2016, which I submitted on the 1st of October. When I called to check up, all they said was they had about a thousand applications and mine is in the queue.

My problem is that I really really need to travel to the UK in December, and I can't apply for the UK visa without proof that I have a right to reside in Finland. I even submitted a request to speed up, but was told I didn't have a good enough reason. I'm really worried as the plane tickets have already been booked and I can't travel again until summer.

Any ideas? Can I get a temporary visa? A letter from migri?

Been there. I wasn't able to do anything, and Migri couldn't help. UK embassy insisted on having the residence permit card.
I had to cancel and book my trip on a different date.
Every case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online.
