Moving out of Finland while my permit is being processed?

Post by Adabecho » Sun Mar 26, 2017 9:34 pm

I am a citizen of Kenya planning to travel to USA from Finland. (I already have the USA visa). I was expecting my extended Finnish residence permit to be given before my departure. However, the application processing time is taking longer than expected (I applied in December 2016). At the moment I working here in Finland and I don't have legal problem to stay here. My concern now is if I am allowed to board my flight to USA with my valid Kenyan passport, USA visa and confirmation of my Finnish residence permit application from Polisi. Please Help!

Hi,
I will advice you to use a flight where your first point of entry into schengen is Finland, for example, Turkish airline, since the Finnish border guard will have your application information and they will easily allow u access back into the country.

The border guard might not be a problem (not sure about that) but the check-in desk certainly is without the valid RP.
