Waiting time

Post by ranou12 » Wed Nov 21, 2018 8:26 pm

Hello
Does it always take 9 months for a decision to be made ? Applications based on family ties , finnish spouses ! It has been 6 months now and I didn't hear anything in my country neither did my husband in Finland ! Please share your stories and the processing times ! I know that every application is unique but you all know that 6 months is a very long time to not hear a word :/

It quite often takes the full 9 months. Don’t expect it sooner but it can come sooner and is a nice surprise then. I have personally for my own family members seen it take progressively longer lately.

Yes, it can take even more than 9 months if for example they request you for an interview and there is no time at ambassy only after X months... There are some exceptions always but the norm is around 9 months.
