Post by nney » Fri Nov 20, 2020 12:52 pm

Hey!

I would want to hear from you, who also applied recidency spouse this year and how has it went so far and how does ur processing look :D
We applied mid october and been processing for a month now. My spouse is Lebanese and i am finnish myself.

Im anxiously checking enterfinland every hour, even i know it wont come that fast.
It says we have 500 persons in queue before our application, any experience from this? How long you think it would take ( i know only heaven knows, but still)

Goodluck to everyone whos in similar situtation and hopefully the time passes fast :cry:

I know that, but was just asking about other experiences. Because i heard some people got it very quick, and some people waited a long time. And that the expected processing time is not always so accurate..

Applied from Turkey since there is no Finnish embassy in Lebanon. This was his first recidence permit, and they did not ask us any information or ask us to go to interview. I think our long relationship history was reason for this😁

you can apply in Finland when she is here. She can legally reside in Finland while her application is processing.

yes I checked that but Is application processed individually and always based on the place of queue ?

"Your place in the queue does not tell you how soon you will get a decision"

"We resolve most of the applications in the order in which they were first submitted. However, the processing time of applications varies depending on different permit criteria. As a result, you may get a decision quickly even if there is a large number of applications ahead of your application in the queue. "
