Extend visa duration

Post by lovehf » Thu Nov 16, 2017 5:54 pm

Hi all!
I have an issue. I came to Finland with a visiting visa to take care of my wife, she's Finnish citizen.
My visa will soon end up this December but I want to stay longer to take care of my wife cause her health is not good. My question's can I stay in Finland to wait for the decision of RP or I have to go to my home country and wait for the result? Is there any possible way to extend my legal staying in Finland?
Thank you very much !

If your RP application is being handled, I think you are allowed to stay in Finland until the decision has been taken. I would suggest you go and ask the police.

You can wait here. It is legal. See FAQ 11. http://www.migri.fi/our_services/faq/residence_permits

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.
