First residence permit for the spouse

Post by Seekingforhope » Thu May 14, 2020 11:31 pm

I am a Finn and we applied for the first residence permit of my wife in a Finnish mission abroad on late November 2019. We are still waiting for the decision. I was wondering if anybody with similar situation has got a decision recently. If yes when did you apply for it. It might help to know how much longer we should wait.
I know it's different case by case but it also great to know other's situation.

The usual time frame is anywhere from 2 to 12 months, however, due to the coronavirus situation there may be further delays. Which country did you apply in?

Hi, I applied on September 2019 and on May 14 my application moved to in progress phase. I think you might wait one more month for the next phase but I don't know how long will it take until the final decision.

Thanks. Since February, it's on the second stage for my wife. It would be great if you share with me when you get your decision. I'll try to do the same if something happens here.

Hi again, my phase for second step took two working days. They checked my file on May 14 and I got the decision on May 19. By the way I applied as a cohabiting partner with 2-year rental agreement. Duration time might change if you're married. Sometimes it might take long if you've just married or if they need an interview. I downloaded all holiday pictures, flight tickets and hotel reservations when I was applying. Maybe this might be helpful if you didn't. I hope the best for you.

Did you apply in Finland? That looks like a smooth processing for being an abroad one, plus the fact that on April 29 Finnish missions abroad were most likely closed.

Hi..
How long typically Stage 2 (In Processing) for spouse permit ?

The processing of your application has started. Contacting us does not speed up the processing of the application. If we need further information from you, we will send you a request through this service.

It has been a month in this stage without any further information, e.g., supplemental request.

thanks

Phase 2 waiting time took 6 days for me. They started to work on my application on June 17 and sent a request for additional information on 23. I answered to the request now, will see how long it will take. Idk if my spouse got a request as well, he's on vacation now...

Probably waiting time depends on how many 3rd parties they'd like to interrogate to solve your case, and how long it would take for them to respond.
