Applying RP simultaneously with family member.. Processing time

Post by billyk » Thu May 03, 2018 6:13 pm

Hi All.

I am new here.

I have obtained a job offer in Finland. Thus, I am applying special expert visa . I have submitted the fingerprint etc at the embassy together with my wife and my kid at the embassy (who are applying simultaneously for their respective RP too).

My question is, will we gt the RP the same time? Or different time? Because I've read somewhere (could not remember) that they will process it so that we can go there the whole family at the same time.

Anyone with the same experience? If yes, how long was your processing time (and your family's) previously?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi,
I had a similar situation when we were applying for our first permits. Of course everyone's application is unique but generally special expert RPs are processed quickly. It is not %100 guaranteed but if you apply together with your family, migri will try to process your applications together. At least that's what they told me when submitting the application. We applied and got the results at the same time with my wife in 2016.

Thanks for the reply. How long was the process for your application and your wife taking place ?

Hi All.

Quick update. Thought it would be helpful if I post it here.

We (my family and I) have finally received the decision. Total of 42 days were taken from the date we submitted our fingerprint/documents at the embassy. From what I have read previously, for specialist/special expert, the period is 30 days. However, I believe, my application process was delayed because they simultaneously checked /processed my family's applications too.

Quite fast actually. Waiting for the physical card now.

Good luck for all of you who're still waiting.
