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

Another quickly-processed residence permit holder here. I received notice of a positive decision about 2.5 weeks after submitting my application and around 10 days after sending my legalized marriage certificate to Migri.

However, I originally applied with a paper application in early June at the consulate on the basis of an established relationship. We married prior to receiving a response on that, so I revised the grounds on which I was applying and submitted a new form. Regardless, Migri contacted me with a request for additional information (regarding the original application) about two months after applying.

I finally got a positive decision today. I applied on march this year. This is my second rp application based on family ties because for my first one, i got a negative decision. I applied for the first rp in my home country and after we got the decision, i came to Finland via Schengen visa and reapplied here. It was a rollercoaster ride but we are happy that the Rp stress is over. :D

It'd be wise if you can stay there, rather than come to Finland. This is advice coming from an american.. I know the US is having its problems when it comes to foreigners dealing with natives, but said problem is 100 fold here in Finland. That and, the finnish language is massive hurdle to climb.

Well I just received approval on my residence permit after nearly 7 months. I applied on March 27th at New York. Only thing they ever asked for was a scan of the legalized marriage certificate (which I had provided 2 hard copies of at the in-person so that was odd).

Question though: they say you cannot enter the country without the permit, and it will take 2-3 weeks to arrive at the New York Consulate. I have a trip planned Nov. 16-26. Will they allow me in without it if it does not arrive in time given that I already have a return scheduled and do not plan to stay permanently yet? Should I call the Consulate and see what they think?

Also, anyone need an English speaking Quality Engineer in the Helsinki/Espoo/Vanta area? :lol:

I applied my first RP based on family ties last week, and got the decision in less than a week and It's positive. I gave them all the paperworks they needed and also, I scanned those paperworks and upload it online through enterfinland. Now, they are sending the card. I wish you guys a good luck. :D :wink:

As an American who has been waiting in Finland with my wife for nearly six months for a decision, I call BS on this. Sure, knowing Finnish helps, but virtually everyone here (at least in Helsinki) knows English. And I also sincerely doubt racism is "100 times" worse here than it is in the US. Are you kidding me?

Happy for you, but pissed for me. I'm seeing so many of these quick decisions while I've been hanging with my ass in the wind for six months without so much as an interview from Migri.
