If you want to track it, why not apply online and use the service to track progress?

Because the process will be so long and hectic , to apply online i have to send the marriage certificate to turkey to be legalised then they send it back to finland and then my wife should register the marriage in finland then we can apply online and book time for vfs in turkey ,while paper application i just book time and bring the documents and pay for the legalisation fee and the vfs will do the legalisation

Ive heard that i can track by calling but how ill be notified for possible interview And decision

Have you considered submitting the electronic application from Turkey once the certificate is legalised? I don't see why paper vs. online would make a difference to whether the marriage needs to be registered in DVV.

To apply online the marriage should be registered in the DVV while if i apply by paper no need or at least this is what the embassy and vfs are saying

Legalise the marriage certificate and submit it in the dvv would take extra months
