Hi guys,
I’m going to apply for Finnish citizenship. But I’m worried about my required residence period. I’m living here in Finland with a (P) permit. I came in Finland in September, 2009. First 2 years in B status and then continuous permit. I travel few times in my home country- Below is the travel list of my whole stay in Finland:

from 17.7.2011-11.9.2011=55days,
25.2.2012- 23.3.2012=27days ,
30.12.2012-27.1.2013=28days,
29.4.2013-19.7.2013=83 days,
27.5.2014- 11.8.2014= 75 days,
9.11.2015- 22.1.2016=74 days,
All together its less than 1 year.

I find this information from Migri.Fi (Absences that last a maximum of one month,
A maximum of six periods of absence that last 1–2 months each,
A maximum of two periods of absence that last 2–6 months each
If you are temporarily absent from Finland for over six months but no longer than one year, your continuous period of residence will not be interrupted. However, the period of absence is not counted as continuous residential time.)

This information makes me confused.

Now my question is am I eligible for applying for the Finnish Citizenship now? In my case is there any interruption of continuous period of residence as I stayed in my home country 3 times slightly more than 2 months but overall period is less than a year? Thanks

Hi Nilakash, I am not an expert at all regarding these matters, just I have done my application a few weeks ago, and read all these rules to be sure about my period of residence is sufficient. Unfortunately 3 trips lasting longer than 2 months seems to me as the violation of the limits, hence your case might be counted as accumulated period of residence, meaning that you will require 7 years in total.. Even in this case, you probably have 7 years of residence period.

Have you tried to email migri and ask if you are eligible for application? I had asked them by email written in Finnish with my ID number, and received a detailed reply back. Wish you good luck!

When I visited Migri office, I was told by the officer that the processing time would be about 6 months, I applied in January and expecting to receive the decision around May, fingers crossed! 8-9 months is way too long! :?
