Residence permit processing times

Post by letseatpizza » Thu Aug 13, 2020 9:54 am

Looks like the estimates were updated on the migri website and now the processing times for a permanent residence permit are 12 months now :/

I applied for mine in June and haven’t heard anything from yet, the status in Enterfinland is still waiting for processing. Has anyone applied within this time frame? Did any of you guys get a decision or had their applications move to processing? Thanks.

Did they contact you in the meanwhile? Did they ask any additional information?

I had zero contact from them between application and decision. My application was in stage 2 for about 2 weeks.

When I applied for PR last November, it took 6 months to get approved. I received Migri's email for additional info, answered right away and got positive decision the next day.

A friend of mine (Asian, RP on basis of a Finnish spouse) applied a couple of months ago and got approved the next day! 1-day processing time, must be a record :D

Did any of you guys get notified when your application moved into processing or the decision has been made? I’m refreshing the page every day now haha

My own experience:
Saturday - Submitted permanent residence permit application online.
Sunday - Searched for appointments again and again, hoping to stumble upon a cancelled appointment. And I did.
Monday - Took the appointment.
Wednesday - Status in EnterFinland remained "waiting for processing".
Thursday - Received message on my phone at 7 am: "You have been served with a new decision, which you can read in your user account."

Last time my extension permit application was submitted on Friday and approved on Monday.

Wow! That’s super awesome. Did I understand correctly that it happened with a permanent residence permit? Did you apply this summer? I’m really anxious about my application haha.

I applied in April 2020, but still waiting for decision . This is very strange and weird. How are the queue numbers assigned?
There are currently 1832 applications in queue.

For what reason did you apply?

Students have priority, in summer not many other applications are being processed.
