RP for dependent mother.

Post by vikas1982 » Sun Jul 15, 2018 12:10 pm

I will be moving to Finland with my wife and kid, based on Residence Permit received.
I have a dependent, senior citizen mother. I want to ask if she is also eligible to get Residence Permit to stay along with us. Tourist visa is only for 90 days, I want her to live with us as long as we are staying so basically dependent residence permit may help.

Thanks in advance

No, unfortunately your dependent mother would not be granted a residence permit. There have been many cases in the news over the years and none of the decisions were in favour of the dependent parent. Finland has a narrow definition of who is family for residence permit purposes. Spouse, registered partner, or children only.
