Marriage with non-EU

Post by hiworld » Fri Aug 18, 2017 6:02 pm

Hi all the lovely people,

I am planning to get married on my tourist visa in Finland. i have visited Finland a few times in these past years, my boyfriend is Finnish and i am cambodian, my questions are as follows:
- Should we stated the purpose of intend to marriage in invitation letter while applying for tourist visa? (note that ill apply through german embassy because no finland embassy in cambodia)
- how long would the marriage registration would take in our case as i am non-eu?
- i plan to apply for residence permit in the same trip but i still want to leave finland and come back in a few month or after residence permit would be granted, do you think there would be an issue?
- if everything success, i plan to bring this marriage certificate to certify in Cambodian Embassy in Paris (because no cambodian embassy in Finland), has anyone done this? any special requirement beside of the marriage certificate from Finland?

Kiitos!

Hi,

Yes good luck both of you but I don't think you will be granted a tourist visa to get married in Finland but let us know how you get on. :)

Visa -> Marry -> Residence permit is an acceptable way to do it. It's listed in Migri FAQs.

8. I am in an established intimate relationship with a foreigner who is not an EU citizen or equivalent. May my partner enter Finland with a visa and apply for a residence permit after we marry?

Your partner may enter Finland with a visa, if the conditions for granting one are met, or without a visa, if your partner is exempt from the visa requirement. A Finnish embassy abroad decides whether a visa is granted.
When you have married, your spouse may apply for a residence permit on the basis of marriage or a registered relationship.

Hi,

Yes but there is no guarantee that the Finnish embassy will grant the visa to enter Finland.

Hi,
I'm sure many have married this way but Migri does state that a visa maybe granted if all the conditions are met. Did you read the Finnish embassies list of requirements needed when applying for visa? Also they will look at how serious is your relationship, how many times you have met each other in Finland or their country etc. Also remember a tourist visa is for tourism and the visa holder is expected to leave Finland after a certain period, this can cause problems when applying for residence permit. Myself I married in Asia then my wife had no problem to enter Finland.

I came to Finland with tourist visa and got married - I told that I came to get married, the second time I also came with tourist visa and applied for RP. I also have friends who were denied for tourist visa and they also told in the application about marriage plan. So lets say it is 50-50

For more info, I was told by the embassy that if I plan to stay in Finland, I need to apply for rp from my country (even it is said on migri page that I can come to Finland and apply here). So even it is allowed in the law, it looks like it depends on different embassies in different countries or maybe on each officer working on your case. If I were you, I would not tell in the application about the plan of getting married or rp application, just apply for a tourist visa as you did before.

Good luck guys!
