Will My Residents Permit Be Rejected??

Post by Nilu » Sun Apr 24, 2016 10:46 am

Good day all
Am worried my resident permit that I just applied for might be rejected . Am from Nigeria and I applied for a tourist visa from my country last year to visit my husband who is a Finnish citizen but I got rejected becoz they said that the reason was not ascertained. Am 25 and my husband is 38. We met abroad and have only seen each other three times before we got married. We have been together 2years now and we talk everyday. I have applied for a resident permit but I fear is going to get rejected again becoz I have a criminal record but I never went to jail. I traveled with a Forged document when I was 20 and i turned my self in and was convicted but got a suspended sentence. My husband know all about it. My husband is a very amazing person and I don't deserve him but I thank God every day for bringing him into my life. I want to make him happy but I hope the immigration don't judge me becoz of my past and where am from.

stupidity on your side.

and was convicted but got a suspended sentence.

Doesn't matter to authorities.

You clearly don't.

not every hour? I am disappointed.
I want to make him happy but I hope the immigration don't judge me becoz of my past and where am from.
They will because the stunt that you pulled.

This lesson should be in every text book from primary school to Ph.D level.

Action => reaction
Decision => consequences

And world would be a lot better place.

If you were travelling to EU or Schengen with forged documents and were deported then I guess the information is passed around all related agencies to ban you the entry for 10 years. Your best bet could be your husband move to Nigeria and live happy married life there.
The OP should know if there is a ban in effect. They would have told OP when it was issued.

Unlikely.
They access all the information they can get. Negative points are not decisive on their own, but they add up.
- Am from Nigeria
- Am 25 and my husband is 38.
- only seen each other three times before we got married.
- I have a criminal record
- tourist visa .... rejected
First impression is a fake marriage by someone who is willing to brake the law and is from a country with a not so good reputation.
But you know all this otherwise you wouldn't have asked.
Worrying doesn't help. Just wait.

I don't think this age difference will have any effect, unless of course one party is in mid/late teenage and second is a senior citizen.

I think we should all be giving a second chance in life. No one is above mistake. We all have done something in life that we are not proud of but it's our decision to change or remain the same. I did something stupid and turned myself in to face the punishment but I was never punish but I changed. I have never been to Europe. So no it didn't happen in Europe.

I do agree with that. But immigration is not a rehabilitation office. Their job is to access the risk of misuse of the Finnish system.
And in the end it comes down to the interpretation of one man/woman handling your case.
In your case it could be useful to use an immigration lawyer to make sure you make the optimal application/appeal.

Schengen visa application is presented to all Schengen countries, and any one of them can veto it. Could have an impact on you if you messed with any of them.

what ground they rejected you?

I was rejected becoz they said I don't have any reason to come back to Nigeria

5: in your Resident Permit did you submit legalized marriage certificate+Police clearance certificate+wedding pics etc.

You shouldn't have apply visit visa before marriage. From 3rd world country it's tough to get visit visa without strong connection, when you applied visit visa and When did you apply the resident permit? Mention date. I wonder why you didn't submit a Police clearance certificate, it could be a pluspoint to your application.

The only problem I can possibly see is your looking for a problem in a solution.

I believe your situation has changed since the last time you got a negative decision for a visa. If I were in your shoes, I'd put in the application for residence permit and submit all the required documents.

I believe you should be fine.
