Thanks for your reply. Maybe you did not get my point, the problem is that I cannot get P before the 4 years run out and also P can be given only when I have A permit valid. So that is kind of funny that they asked that I should have A valid while P is being process and P cannot be given until all 4 years is consumed.
You don’t need a valid A. You only need to apply while the A is valid.

Hey guys

I have a question about residence permit application. I have had 3 years on B after that I got 4 years straight on A and it is expiring in May. I have applied for finnish citizenship but since it takes long and I might have to apply for a permanent residence permit, but since that requires that I have to have 4 years on A to be eligible and I cannot get P residence permit if A is expired. Would it make sense I apply for just A permit in case I do not get my Citizenship decision on time. I am planning to book a time for February in case I do not get my citizenship decision but I dont know which one is wise to book between A or P Residence permit.

Does anyone know anybody who had this situation before? I would appreciate your help.
Is it that your A permit is expiring on May, 2022? If yes then there shouldn't be any issue with applying P or even again A (which is quite fast to get the decision).

If you meant that your A permit already expired on May 2021, and you have not applied for your A permit renewal then you will have an issue with the residency since you were supposed to have a valid residency status while your citizenship application is being processed.

I had similar situation like yours (4 years B + 4 years A) while my citizenship was being processed. My A permit expired on August 20, 2021. But I choosed to apply for A on July 15th rather than applying for P because I did not had the permanent work contract. I received the decision for A permit extension for 1 year (untill the validity of work contract) within a month and also the decision on the citizenship application the same day.

Hope this helps!
Good luck with your application.

Thank you very much for the information. My A permit will expire in May 2022. I will go for A permit then. How long did your citizenship application take?

It took around 7.5 months in total.

Anyone else stuck in stage 2 for 6 months??? Is this normal? I looked through the thread and haven’t seen much to support that this is common.

In my own opinion, they're are still acting on that list. Even though they've removed it from migri website.

It's been 10 months for me. The application is still untouched. Stage 1 or zero whatever we may call that.

Really frustrating for us to go through like this. I think we need to be treated fairly. 🤔
