Start date of permit extension?

Post by agroot » Mon Dec 21, 2020 9:39 pm

If I apply for extension of continuous residential permit let's say 3 months earlier, will it be extended X years from the date of application/processing, or from the end of my current permit?

Thanks!

I submitted with strong identification but it still tells me I have to visit a service point and the earliest appointment slot is 3 months later! :shock: Is this normal now?

It's risky to have ID and permit expiring!

So what do people do? Looks like I can go there and wait in queue without appointment? Like, start queueing at 7am something?

You cannot queue without appointment in corona time. You just gave to wait. You can keep checking the appointment availability frequently in case of cancellations

Also this happens often and your permit is valid if you ha e completed your application online and paid the fee before it expires. Migri covers these situations in faq somewhere on their website.

Not really. It's been available again since September.

Wouldn't it affect the ability to travel abroad or other banking related stuff? The date is used to check credit card installment for example.

yes, students in Finland have been practical prisoners in Finland. It used to take 11 months to process student permit and they get permit just in time to apply for another one without having any ability to travel outside Finland.

I do not understand your problem here, what does bank and credit card payment has to do with residence permit application/processing duration?

Because the personal identity card has the same expiry date as the residence permit and cannot be renewed until the permit is extended.

At least for installment payment in shops, you cannot choose a period over the expiry date. Also, since personal identity card was used to enable bank's online identification, wouldn't that be affected too?
