Average processing time for extension THIS YEAR (work)

Post by brazilianfinn » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:09 pm

Hey, everyone. I'm a student from Brazil and my student permit is valid until 6th of June. I was just offered a Summer job to start in June and I was looking into extending my permit to change the grounds to work and I saw that the police handed extensions to Migri just this year, so they don't have an estimate processing time for that. The thing is that I really need to know if it's possible to get that permit for June because otherwise I can't work and could just go home, so I'm in a horrible position of not knowing what to do with my apartment, flight tickets, all those practicalities that you take care of when moving out.

I was hoping some of you did extension of work permit this year and could tell me how much time it took for the process to complete. Also, I was thinking about calling Migri to ask about this, like... If I prove my identity in the first week of April, how likely is it to get the permit for June or just ask about the average processing time for extensions, do you guys think this is something that they would answer? I don't wanna call for nothing because I know they're very busy.
Anyway, any input is appreciated because this is a tough position to be in, I really don't know what to do.

Thanks for the help!

Call Migri and ask. It's their job. Actual waiting and processing times vary from time to time, case to case. Someone elses past experience will not give you the same insight a call to Migri will give.

Help yourself. It's easy.

Ok, I called them. They said they can't give an average processing time for extension because it's something new for them.
So I asked if my permit could be on the grounds of traineeship instead of work because I read on the website and I think it fits but just wanted to ask to make sure. My friend said a friend of his applied as a specialist and it took 1 month, and the other as a normal worker and it took 4 months, so I think if I apply on the grounds of traineeship it would be faster.
But then the person didn't know how to answer and gave me a "special" number to call between 10-11 AM, so I'm gonna try that tomorrow.
