Today my husband got positive decision of RP, we have waited 8 months and 9 days. We waited about 6 months to be processed, then I answered questioners, my husband went for interview, I attached supplements and answered more questions. And thanks migri and God, that finally we got the good decision. Good luck everyone. <3 <3 <3
Could you share what kind of interview he had?

After six months of waiting (applied 18 May), Migri finally got around to sending me and my wife some questions to answer. I am in no way overly excited, because I know there's just more red tape and more waiting to come. But, it's something, at least.

I know that some people wait for years in the US for the Green Card, and Canadian processing also takes years.

But this is Finland, it should have been faster, I know that there is some investigation ongoing into the processes and staffing at Migri. And I know that they have also promised additional funding to make things happen, particularly for work-based immigration. I could perhaps convince myself that this is a resource based issue, and not a wilful bias. Hopefully, things get a bit better. I know few of the people there, interacted with them in the past... have spoken to them. They are still in similar roles, and I personally don't have a high opinion of them.
Yep, it is! What's the big deal?

Went to turn in the answers to the questions Migri asked my wife and I, assuming I'd be talking to someone there. Instead, a security guard just pointed at this nondescript, empty bin hanging on the wall. Makes me wonder how often they check it.

Woke up to find my first residence permit has arrived, exactly eight months after I applied in person at Migri. I didn't have to do the interview that I keep reading about, and neither did my wife. A great day, indeed.

This is my case, even tho I've been illegal in Finland for about 9 months after my 90 days as a tourist. (I married my wife 20 days after my 90 days period ended). About 1 week after I proved my identity in the Migri office, I had to pay a cheap fine to the Police then everything was fine.

11/16/2018 You have proved your identity and a diary number has been created for your application. You can see the diary number at the top of the page. Your application has been placed in the processing queue. We will contact you if we need more information from you. Our processing times can be found on our website at www.migri.fi
12/20/2018 A decision has been made on your application.

Don't ask me how that was possible. My wife thinks I may have some kind of guardian angel or something.

5/7/2018 You have proved your identity.
10/24/2018 You have sent additional information for the application.
10/25/2018 The processing of your application has started.
10/29/2018 You have replied to a request for supplementary information.
12/20/2018 You have sent additional information for the application.
12/21/2018 A decision has been made on your application.

Here's my story, A day before my application started processing I updated my address which was followed by supplemental questions which I answered quickly. I felt like they forgot about me and so i decided to give them a nudge. I updated my address again and thought, "hey I bet you get the decision the day after because they forgot about you". So said so done. :lol: :lol:

I applied based on the being the fiance of a finnish citizen. We have lived together in the US for over 2.5 years. We are moving back to Finland together.

Thank you guys for the support over the months, I welcome any questions you may have.

Probably would have been a lot easier to take care of your marriage and apply for your RP during your 90 days, that way you could stay legally for as long as it takes Migri to make a decision. But, whatever works, I guess. I find it pretty stupid that I did everything by the book and had to wait eight months, and someone who was here illegally got a positive decision in just one month. I guess I'll never understand how the @#$% Migri conducts its business, but congrats, I guess.
