Thanks for your reply. I am a bit confused. Just trying to understand because I am trying work out how early I can apply. You mentioned that Migri said to you that your 4 years requirement will be met in mid August and mentioned earlier that you applied in November 10th 2020. Does that mean you applied you applied 9 months before 4 years requirement to be fulfilled? Can you please clarify? Thanks.
My own estimate was that i should meet the required residence time by May. So i applied approximately 6 months before because expected processing time was 12 months when I applied.
But I do not understand how Migri calculated my residence time and told me that I meet the requirement in August. Maybe they did not calculate the duration in day by day basis as I did and just gave me a very conservative time estimate.

Getting stage 2 in 2 months is still very interesting. Is your RP based on work or family?
It's based on work.

I think when it’s based on family, takes longer. But nobody knows Migri’s sick mentality lol

Hello Everyone !

I have questions related to Citizenship Application.

I am from Pakistan and it is in the list of countries for which identification process might takes longer.

I want to know that how long does it takes for those countries ?

16 months is quite a long time! I'd be writing them emails every day until they get sick of me and give me a real decision.

Well, I have an update about my case.

Visited Migri on 19.1.2021
Moved to stage 2 on 19.2.2021
Positive decision made on 26.3.2021
I'm a Brazilian national on a permanent residence permit based on family ties(Finnish wife).

Wish you good luck on your case.

Congrats. For permanent RP its a normal time. Understandable.

Does positive decision say “ you have been granted citizenship” kinda thing? And is your citizenship status updated on population system?

Thanks.

Application submitted on 26.03.2021
Visited Migri 31.03.2021

A brief summary of my experience. The entire process at the Migri office was approx. 10mins. The officer requested for my passi, made copies of the data page and other pages containing travel stamps, he later requested to see the hardcopy of my YKI test result. He asked about my work history ever since I've been living in Finland, fortunately I've only had just one employer. He didn't bother to check the other documents we were asked to bring along, he claimed there is no need for such since I did an electronic application with all my documents already uploaded. He said it will take roughly a year for the process, and if there are any other things reuqested of me, I will get the notification on enterfinland portal.
The question bugging my mind now, if this is the process why do we need to visit the office in person if all documents have been uploaded. Booking appointment wasn't that easy as no free slots were that available on the website, I was lucky to find a free slot in another town where I had the appointment. Imagine waiting for 3 months before getting an appointment to appear for a meeting that will last barely 10mins, and not including that to the waiting time for decision that takes forever.

I think the idea is to see how well you can speak Finnish. As you may know, some people have some language certificates that they can’t defend, probably someone wrote the test for them. That’s my guess though.

Also to verify the authenticity of the documents you uploaded. If you get language result and past, but cannot speak a word, it’s suspicious. Maybe many other reasons. Migri is a mystery.

Congrats, Can you explain more about your case? What queue number have you had? Did you have permanent residence? And which continent are you from?

Can someone please advise?
Putting together the documents for citizenship application and wondering what needs to go under “past sources of income). I’m of course attaching my current employment agreement and payslips but do I need to do the same for ALL jobs I had? Old employment agreements, salary slips, etc? How did you guys fill in this section?
