Is it true that you can wait in Finland with your spouse until a decision is made on a residence permit? US citizen here.

Yes, I have read once at Migri that you can stay in Finland as long as the decision on your application isn't made. And you can stay in Finland even if your Visa expires while waiting for the decision.

I can't find where I read it exactly, but I am sure and certain that I read it. Right now, the website is being updated, and some pages are not availables yet.

If you're in doubt, why don't you email them to make sure — [email protected], or spend some time reading their website. :thumbsup:

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.

I emailed them over a week ago. No response other than some automated stuff. It’s fine; I’m going to immigration to apply today anyway, so I will know soon.

Does anyone know how it is with registration of Right of residence (EU citizens moving to finland)? Does it also take long time till decision? I was reading that decision is made right there at place where i will apply for it. But i feel like i missunderstand the text and i will also need to wait.

If all fine with your documents, you get the decision right there at the office when you apply. In case of RP for family members of EU citizen will take months.

Does anyone notice that the queue for the residence permit based on the spouse of a Finnish citizen states 0 on the migri website?

Yeah, that’s pretty weird.

When I applied with my wife back on the 18th of May, the man was impressed by how prepared we were with our documents and forms. He said he’s confident the decision will be made sooner than nine months. Does anyone know of any examples of people who received a decision much sooner than nine months based on a family ties (spouse) application? I applied in Helsinki, so at least I get to stay here for however long it takes.

My application is 6 months old now. Haven't heard from them yet.
1st RP -- Family ties -- Spouse of Finnish Citizen.
I didn't apply through EnterFinland.
And I am from Morocco.
