Re: Finland condition after war in Ukraine...

In your opinion, when Finland becomes a NATO member, will Russia's threats increase? From the end of WWII until this year Finland had good relations with the Soviet Union and later Russia. What will change is that Russia will in the future see Finland no longer as a friend but as part of the NATO e...

Re: Interview for the Citizenship application

The migri "interviewer" asked me only one question (did I have my own company in the last 5 years), to which I replied no in Finnish. After copying all my docs, he spoke for a couple of minutes - the main thing I picked up was it was going to take at least 9 months to get a result (in lin...

Re: Permanent residence permit or citizenship

How does your "careful paperwork" work in practice for travelling from Finland inside Schengen? There might be no border controls, but if you are controlled in another country you risk deportation and a multi-year ban from re-entering Schengen. If you are living in Tornio and cross the bo...

Re: Permanent residence permit or citizenship

My friend was in a similar situation. He couldn't travel during the PR processing period. Migri told him that he could travel after he gets his PR, since the RP validity also ended. If Migri gave such advice, the person giving it made an error. ” I have submitted an application for a residence perm...

Re: Finland condition after war in Ukraine...

Not much. On February 23rd there was not much fear and stress among Ukrainian citizens that Russia may attack Ukraine. I accept your words. It is true that people get used to this fear and stress, but what is the reality? Could Russia make more threats against Finland or launch a military strike? Y...

Re: Finland condition after war in Ukraine...

Not much. On February 23rd there was not much fear and stress among Ukrainian citizens that Russia may attack Ukraine. Do you mean there is a good chance Russia will attack Finland? I mean that "fear and stress" is unrelated to actual risk. Do you remember how two years ago there were a l...

Re: Finland condition after war in Ukraine...

I'm going to immigrate to Finland, but I do not know what the situation in Finland is and how the war in Ukraine has affected the country. Economically it is not good. We have 1000 km of border with Russia, and Russia was traditionally a huge trade partner for us. Let's hope the EU sanctions will e...

Re: Resident permit or residence card?

On a separate note, embassy of some EU countries try to avoid recognizing the free movement right of EU citizen's family members. So if you have an embassy of Finland in the country, where your family member apply for the entry visa, that would be good for you. That's not relevant here: I am Eu cit...

Re: Resident permit or residence card?

I am little bit confused about which one is needed. I wonder if anyone had a similar situation. I am Eu citizen living in Finland for a few years and I got married with someone from non-EU country on a visa. On the migri page states that the family of an EU citizen need a residence card(https://mig...

Re: Ponters for charging station installation in parking lot

Also how much does it charge approximately as I do not have a great clarity on how much the company pays for electricity. Just wondering will it still be in the range of 10c/KWh or more (I know if i ask the company i will get the input but any idea from this forum :) ) It really depends on the elec...

Re: Alien Act after Brexit

So if an embassy is not recognizing the right given by Article 14 of withdrawal agreement, quoting from the relevant article should be be sufficient? I was trying to also give them a reference from Alien act. What do you mean with not recognizing? Have you applied online and gotten a time at the em...

Re: Alien Act after Brexit

Finland embassy is saying only right applies is visa is free of charge nothing else. Brexit withdrawal agreement is EU law so it’s in eur-lex ...

Does anybody know the minimum amount of days you need to stay in the country for the Intimate relationship visa? I would also want to renew and wouldn't want to be denied because I had to go back home for some portion of the year. 183 days per year should be enough Residence (and the obligation to ...
