1. As you can prove your language skills in a number of ways as provided in the links:
Source: http://www.migri.fi/finnish_citizenship ... age_skills
(a) Language proficiency certificates (YKI)
(b) Basic education certificates
(c) Upper secondary school certificates
(d) Vocational qualification certificates (Like, OMNIA, SEDU, or other ammatiopisto)
(e) Certificates issued for higher education in Finland (a certificate of approval of a maturity test in Finnish or Swedish)
Is there anyone who has applied for citizenship in 2016 (from February, March or April) using other language requirement(s) other than YKI and they have got their decision.
2. Please do update this thread with you application experience - whether you call the MIGRI office when the time specified (8 - 9 months) has expired or not.
