Just wanna share my info here and hope that it would be helpful. My RP is researcher type (A permit), arrived in Finland on July, my spouse started her application in August and after 2 weeks we got the decision. I sent an email to Migri stating that we had been counting days by days to reunite and also mentioned that she needs the RP A to apply for her master course which will close its application soon. Migri replied me after 10 mins I sent the email and put our application into progress, surprisingly.
Wish the best to you all.

They probably gave her expedited processing via student rules.
She has not yet applied for the master course, just our plan. I think it is all about luck.

We applied on 6th September and proved our identity. The officer just read our application, took the biometric finger prints, saw the original documents and then just gave us the paper saying that my wife can stay in Finland while the application is in process. He said we will get a decision in maximum 2 months. The status on enter finland is now waiting for processing. Is that normal and should i expect any suppliment requests or questions from migri? Also the waiting time estimate on the migri website say that it will take 5 to 8 months. I am a bit confused now how long will it take. Should i trust the officer? But anyways, i hope the officer was right and we do get a decision in 2 months. I have got my fingers crossed. :) Got luck for all others who are waiting.

Some information about our application: i have a work based A type residence permit. My wife is visiting finland and we got married over here a few days before we applied for the rp while she was on her visit visa.

2 months is not impossible but highly unlikely. Every time a migri officer has given me an estimate at an appointment, it has never been correct.

From all the processing times online it says 7 to 9 months. I wish I was there in Finland able to get a resident permit. It takes longer than that from all the stuff I researched online.
