@pepino I applied inside Finland. Got supplementary questions to answer by physical mail. Nothing else after that. It's a long process. Been 5 months since I applied.

@quillcentaur My partner received the supplementary questions through physical mail a little over 3 weeks after submitting my application at the embassy. Have you had any updates since sending back the questions?

Nope. I'm not really surprised. There are so many people applying for Student RP who haven't even got their RP even though the school year already started!

I've just received an email today (1 month and a little over 3 weeks after applying in my country) that a decision has been made and that it is ready to be picked up from my local Finnish embassy. Has anyone received a similar email? I won't be able to get it until Monday and I'm just hoping that it's positive!

Just to update in case someone comes across this and would like to know, I have received a positive decision and my residence permit card now just under 2 months of submitting my application at my local Finnish embassy.

This forum has been very helpful - thank you to all that have posted!

Hoping someone can help with a related question - for the income requirement, does your partner have to prove the funds for a sustained period of time? Or just prove they meet in the income requirement on the most recent bank statement?

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

It is nice to share an experience here. It seems this is the only place I found related to this topic
.
I have also applied for https://migri.fi/en/intimate-relationship visa in the middle of March, within one week I received mail with 10 questions. I sent in the midnight and the next morning received requests for extra attachments. It seems in my case is super fast, maybe because I am here in Finland.

According to the below messages I was expecting questing to come in at least in 2-3 month but I have received them in one week.
Anyway, I will keep updated here. Good luck everyone who is waiting and stay safe!

Hey Nakki,

I am also looking forward to apply on this basis, I want to know about income do we have to show reserved funds?
I am already in finland and working so i and my partner both have a job and having been living together for 3 years.

So about income what documents did you give?

Applying for a residence permit on other grounds would be a bad choice in your situation, it does not even offer a full right to work in Finland.
What you write implies that you are likely eligible both for a residence permit based on work and for a residence permit as family member. Extending whichever of these you already have would be the easiest option.

I am working as a web developer in a software house, and in migri website its written that you can be able to work in middle or top position of a company, so i believe i am in the middle position of a company. and for family ties its taking more then 5 month for initial process and for temporary I need to get RP as quickly as posible so this is the only quickiest and easiest RP process i found, but yeah in future we can apply for marriage or family ties.

Also a question came in my mind, that what if we broke up not saying that we are gonna, so does any records shows that my girlfriend is in relation with me, as we belong to middle eastern family and parents could be little wild about this relationship.

What is your current RP and why can't you extend that one?

The Migri estimate for the other grounds RP is 3–8 months processing time, which is similar to the family ties RP.
It also wouldn't make sense if the exceptional other grounds RP would be processed faster than the normal RP categories.

Now is the time of the year when Finnish universities are publishing admission results, and in normal times Migri is then busy with priority processing of student RPs (and Migri staff taking summer vacation) until autumn.
What will happen this year is impossible to predict.

It is very likely.
