How long do you have to wait for the card? Share your experience!

Post by KattyTheKitty » Fri Nov 09, 2018 2:16 pm

Hi guys, Just being curious about the waiting time for the card to arrive in your mailbox. My decision is made already, and It's been over two weeks, but no mail from migri in my mailbox that contains RP card has arrived at my address. I have contacted migri, and they said that they are sending it as an ordinary letter which kinda concerns me since I cannot track it and It doesn't have tracking number either. So, I'm here would like to know about your experience on that matter. How long did you have to wait for the card to arrive? Kiitoksia. :)

About 2-3 weeks in Finland.
Every case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online.

Yeah, that's what I found on migri website too. Maybe I just being worried about it getting lost somewhere since Neuvola once sent me a letter to my address and It has never showed up!! 😅

Somehow I received mine in exactly a week, and I'm in the US. They must have mailed it the consulate that same day, who then sent it to me. Thought it would take longer but it was very quick.

Wow. That was fast. I once sent my husband some paperworks from my home country to his address (in Finland) back then, It took 2 weeks for all those papers to arrive in Finland. :? I'm waiting for the card in Finland. Hoping It will be in my mailbox soon! :D Hoping It won't get lost. :cry:

It is relative. In my case the decision took 6 days and the card arrived after 8 days in the Embassy of Finland in Chile.
