Hello guys,

Finally my turn has come to share my experience in this thread.

Proved identity in Vaasa on 7.5.2018
Moved to 2nd stage today 11.10.2018
II got a positive decision about 45 minutes later.

Best of luck to everyone.
Congrats!!!Did u get an email when ur application moved to second stage?
No. I just check every day couple of times. But I got an sms when the decision was ready.
BTW, one thing I have done was that I have always kept my payslips updated all the time so If I were you I would upload my latest pay slips already.
Thank u!Will update my info this evening (need to upload payslips).

Hi,
What does proved my identity mean?
Thanks
After you submit your application online you have to book an appointment with Migri to show all your original documents which you submitted with your online application and check you ID and a small interview discussing mostly about the documents you submitted
Thank you!

After you have applied online for the citizenship, you need book an appointment at Immigration office to show your original documents and your ID/Passport.

Thank you !

It’s interesting as most of the cases tell that ones the applicant got to stage 2 it takes only few hours or few days to get decision, so I think they start to process already applications like some weeks ago but it looks in the portal stage 1 as I don’t believe they give citizenship just in an hour or 2 😅

Anyways let’s hope for the best and congrats to each new finn 🎉

Hei,
Do I have to scan my papers and attach them to my application or I just fill in the application what papers I have and then show then at the appointment?

In 4 years I travel 3 times to my country 10- 14 days each time. And 3 times 1 week to Europe . How does it affect the periode that I lived in Finland? Do I need to apply exactly when I lived 4 years or I need to wait little more like 4 years and 2 months?

Thanks everyone in advance.

Hei, You have to attach the necessary documentation to your application. And then take the originals with you when you go for your appointment.
The travel that you mentioned, does not affect the application. You can find more details on how travel affects your application here: https://migri.fi/en/how-to-calculate-th ... -residence

Lastly, you can even apply exactly on the day that you completed your 4 years residence. My wife did that and got her citizenship.

Br,
K

I really don't understand how and why Migri watch applications :shock:
why some applications are in stage 1 for long and in stage 2 few hours? why my application was in progress for 5 months?! so many why in my head.
you all who got citizenship already and made application in May, how long you have been in Finland and what are your conditions: work, marriage?
I have lived in Finland for 10 years and have a job and Finnish husband and baby. Seems like I should get citizenship without problems and quickly but no...

I am still waiting from the 23rd April. I assumed my application would be an open and shut case and was expecting quite fast results (like 3 or 4 months), but it has been almost 6 months now and still nothing. I am an EU citizen. It seems people who proved ID in Helsinki get processed a little faster than the rest of us. Maybe because other Migri around Finland have to mail everything across to Helsinki and it adds a couple more weeks. Whereas the decisions are made in Helsinki so people proving ID there don't have this additional hurdle.

So frustrating. This is what drives me mad about Finland, everything is so damn slow and painful when working with authorities.
