Tourist visa for parents

Post by hiworld » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:20 pm

I'm holding a residence permit type A and come to Finland for less than a year. I want to invite my parents to visit me in Finland. I am concern if they could get a tourist visa if I am the one who sponsor them from here because I am unemployed and I moved here less than a year but I miss them and I want them to see where I live....

Have anyone done this recently? any tips? FYI - I am from southeast asia

You have to prove that you can provide the incoming request for them both. How can you do that if you don’t have a job?

On what grounds have you got your permit?

Hi Vla,

I'm married to a finnish citizen, however he is a freelancer so no stable income. My parents will stay at our place so basically there will be no much expense for them, just flight ticket so I just hope that the embassy who issue on visa can see that.

Your parents may have to prove strong ties to their home country. In other words assurances that they will return home and not overstay their visa.

There is a requirement anyway of how much money they need on a daily basis. I think it’s 30€ per day per person. They still need to eat and everything so to have a place to stay it’s not enough. And if they’re entering with a tourist visa they would supposed be doing tourism so they will need money for transportation and maybe some activities.

The authorities will definitively ask for this and also the return tickets.
