There is a chance that I violated the period of residency, but I am not sure how migri will calculate that. Migri allows to be away 2 times, from 2-6 months. I was out for 3 times, 3 months each. So theoretically, I violated only one time. But then again, that one time does not comply with any of migri's statements, because migri said:Doncod wrote: ↑Fri Feb 21, 2020 9:55 pmWell in my own opinion I think you have violated the period of residency, it doesn't matter if the reason for staying outside Finland was temporarily or permanently.alisa_v123 wrote: ↑Fri Feb 21, 2020 4:20 pmHi guys,
I have one question regarding the period of residence when applying for Finnish citizenship. During the time when I was studying in university, I moved out of Finland temporarily to do two compulsory internship and one exchange study abroad, each duration lasted 3 months.
As I read on migri website, it says:
"The following periods of absence from Finland will not interrupt your continuous period of residence, and their time will be calculated as continuous residence time:
absences of a maximum of one month
a maximum of six periods of absence that last 1–2 months each
a maximum of two periods of absence that last 2–6 months each"
In the last sentence, it says "a maximum of two periods of absence that last 2-6 months each".
In my case, I was out of Finland 3 periods, each time 3 months, so in total I have 9 months outside Finland.
However, for example, if a person leaves Finland 2 periods, each time 6 months, in total that person has 12 months outside Finland.
If comparing the absences period, I stayed out of Finland less than the other person, but based on migri website, I am not qualified because migri allows only two periods and I had three periods.
Therefore, I would like to ask, since I moved out of Finland only temporarily and not permanently, will it effect my period of residency?
Look forward for your reply
House, if am wrong you can elaborate more on it.
"The following period of absence from Finland will not interrupt your continuous period of residence but it will not be calculated as continuous residence time:
a period of absence that lasts longer than six months but one year at maximum" => in my case, it was less than 6 months
If you are absent from Finland for longer than a year, your continuous period of residence is interrupted. The periods you have lived in Finland before your absence will be counted towards your accumulated period of residence. => obviously not my case
So basically, I do not know how migri will deal with my violation of 3 months away for my compulsory exchange study.
Let me know what you think.
