Hi, if it helps, I could share some of my background info.

I'm from a SE Asian country. I have lived here for 4,5 years. I actually got my P permit on basis of work just 2 months before I started to apply for citizenship. I had read somewhere that process could even take 12 - 18 months, so i thought " why not just send the application in, by the time they start the process, i would live here for 5 years already?" Personally, I'm not really sure your country of origin matters that much, because my country has quite high rejection rate for RP application. Anw, I think I was very lucky too.

All the best you guys!

Estimated processing time. Means could be more or could be less. With corona situation, the estimate is probably longer than 11-12 months.

Yes, I know that Corona virus affects the situation in general, but I hope that the processing time is not to be too long ..

Did you pass the language test in the first try? How have you managed to learn the language?

Yes I did. I attended classes, self-studied and watched some kids' shows on Yle :D For me, the challenge is never to pass the test, but to actually use Finnish in daily life. Sadly, my Finnish is still pretty bad...

What form of ID did you have to bring to the test? Also if I fail, can I take the test as many times as I want?

I took the tests almost 3 years ago so I can't remember very well, but I guess I brought my passport and Finnish ID card. You can take the test as many times as you want, but since it is quite expensive, i aimed to get it on my first attempt :ochesey:

Hi there, I live and applied in Helsinki. It came as a surprise that the process was so fast. Moreover, I expected a 30-min long interview when proving identity but the Migri guy did all the talking and I walked out after less than 10min.
