My boyfriend had a residence permit based on his work.
We applied for this visa in June 2020. (after approximately one year of distant relationships and occasional meetings)
After a month both of us received questions we had to answer!
My boyfriend got questions like. When and where we have gotten to know each other?. When did we start dating? Have you lived together in Finland together? Where and when? How many times have you seen each other? What language do you speak with each other? What plans do you have for the future?
After that long radio silence in December 2020 when my boyfriend got the second round of questions.
Questions were very similar to previous ones. And I was asked to show my bank account statement again.
A day after submitting these requests I received a residence permit(B) for the period of one year!
For the application, we have submitted all the necessary documents. Additional documents were the written timeline of our relationships. Our pictures together and a very long screenshot of our call history on WhatsApp
