Wedding as a purpose of visiting for a tourist visa

Post by Kuzay » Sun Jan 10, 2021 3:18 pm

Hi,

My fiancee and I are planning to get married in Finland. Is it okay to mention marriage as a reason for getting the tourist visa? I live in Finland, she's going to apply for a visa.

Update on this:

My fiancee mentioned in her plan of the visit that she wants to spend some time with me and get married. She received a tourist visa for a year.

"A visa is an entry permit for a short, temporary visit of less than 90 days." https://um.fi/visa-to-visit-finland
"If you want to stay in Finland for a longer period than three months, you need a residence permit." https://um.fi/residence-permits-to-finland
Are you sure that she got visa?

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.

The visa is valid for one year. But she can't spend more than 90 days in 180 days period. ( default tourist visa Schengen rules)

A multiple entry visa, for example, wouldn’t work without being valid for a longer time.
