Residence permit new rule

Post by jack2012 » Sun Sep 09, 2018 8:00 pm

Hi,

I was trying to understand new rule for residnce permit;

https://valtioneuvosto.fi/artikkeli/-/a ... geId=en_US

Does anyone know how it is working actually?

1) Is Migri issuing 2 years to student instead of 1 year first time?
2) Is Migri giving 2 years to look for job after graduation instead of one year now?
3) Is Migri giving 4 years to researcher instead of 1 year now?

Kiitos :)

How it works in any given case, is still individually decided. Read the article, again if needed, it's quite clearly stated how the policy - in general terms - has changed and that longer permits may (not "shall") be granted.

This is not some new revelation. This has always been the case. All permits are may-issue not shall-issue. Student residence permits do sometimes get granted for 6 months even when they're conventionally issued for 1 year. Work residence permits are usually extended to be 4 years on the second issuance, but are sometimes extended with only one year in some cases. There are many other examples.

This change is just a change to the default issuance parameters. It's very likely that the vast majority of new permits will be issued according to the new 2-year guideline, unless there are special circumstances preventing that.
Every case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online.

Did I claim otherwise? My point exactly was that even though the policy changed, nothing cannot be said based on it about any individual case.
