Working holiday to SPOUSE VISA

Post by RebeccaIms » Mon Jul 17, 2017 4:39 pm

Hi,

If anyone knows anything about the following please let me know:
1. How long does it take to get a WHV as an Australian citizen.
2. Is it possible to while you're on the WHV in Finland to apply for a Spouse visa? I have a Finnish partner (cohabitants for many years). I briefly talked to migri about this and they said you can change and extend a visa form within Finland. Does anyone have any experience in this?

Thanks a million in advance.

Visa is for visiting, up to three months, residence permit is for residing.
Only Australians and Kiwis can even get residence permit on the grounds of working holiday.
1. according to migri.fi up to 4 months
2. No as there is no spouse visa. Yes for the residence permit based on family ties. Check extended residence permit.
