Getting married on a tourist visa

Post by agksam » Sat Dec 29, 2018 11:19 pm

Hello,
I am a Finnish residence but I am thinking of getting married to my fiancee here in Finland when she comes with a tourist visa.
Is it a possibility to get married to her here in Finland while she's one tourist visa?

Hi,

Yes you can but doesn't mean she will receive her residence permit in 1 week it can take up to 9 months or more. Until the RP decision she will be classed as a tourist so can't work claim benefits etc, and she will need health insurance. RP applications are treated individually and not always straight forward. To get married here she will need a Certificate from her country to prove she is single and as far as I remember this must be in Finnish or English.

And to get married ie. with Thai girl, that paper have to be approved at finnish embassy
at Bangkok. And after that, it is very hard to get visitor visa nowadays...
