Waiting time for an appeal

Post by Jeez » Mon Sep 03, 2012 6:49 pm

Hi folks,
Can someone tell from experience how long it takes nowadays (2012) for a residence permit appeal to be decided?
I filed an appeal sometime ago (lost count of how many months ago) n its still pending decision, thanks in advance for all your valuable opinions.

Kaarina91, did you try to contact the court or police while the appeal is being processed? When you submitted the appeal, did you get any estimation for how long the waiting time will be?

Anyone else please! Your information will be so helpful to people waiting for the court like me and others. I lodged the appeal in June 2012 but haven't received any response from the court so far. I am running out of patience :(

Thanks Upphew for the info but that seems to be for Vaasa Administrative Court only. Any idea about Helsinki?

There is crapload more administrative stuff going on in Helsinki and probably immigrants too. So I would be surprised to hear that they are faster than smaller courts.

2011 figures Helsinki and Vaasa as a comparison (average waiting time/months):
Aliens in general
Helsinki 7,8, Vaasa 8,1
Family permits: Helsinki 9,9 Vaasa 8,4
Other residence permits: Helsinki 9,5 Vaasa 7,3

I don't think you should look for more precise answer, the permits are not decided on strict, first appealed, first served basis anyway.
There were a small number cases that had been decided in less than 2 months, significant fraction that had got a result in 2-5 months, but also those that took more than a year, plus a few which took over 18 months.

In the olden days, they use to basically threaten if you contact them it will take longer for your permit to be processed.

So don't go contacting them. Just wait.

While waiting for the court decision, can I make a new application? Will the police precess?

No, they will wait the outcome of the appeal and then reject the application immediately if the appeal is rejected.
A flow of continuous applications does not let you stay. That trick is not working.

If I get negative decision from the court, can I reapply with a new application?

yes, from your home country.
When the appeal is denied, you have to leave.

Do we have the link somewhere for the law about this? I know one of my friend who has been rejected by both the administrative and supreme courts then he came to the police, they advised him to reapply and he finally got the RP.

You can reapply. The difference is that the second time they may issue a refusal of entry/expulsion order, and if necessary enforce it, even while your application is being processed.
