Can someone tell me what is delaying student resident permit to finland
Re: Finland by Nobody: 7:20am On Aug 10, 2011
Im sure your application is not up to 8 wks yet, Am I right? if that is the cas,no cause for alarm if you submitted genuine and properly filled documents, Best of Luck
Re: Finland by esko: 2:11pm On Aug 16, 2011
@all, does it mean if its not up to 8wks after interview they wouldn't make a decision/issue a resident permit. Even when they are aware ur study commences this August ending? Also, do they mail everybody that applied or do they only invite people who have been decided positively to bring bak their passport for their residence permit? Pls reply
Re: Finland by echometry(m): 1:06pm On Aug 18, 2011

Pls,do u tink i shud send dat person's statement wen asked by d embassy.Thanks.
Re: Finland by capiti: 3:30pm On Aug 18, 2011
Requesting bank statement started last year.
Their letter usually will ask you to send:

1) Documentation concerning Your means of support
Statement of account issued by Your bank indicating all transactions to and from Your bank account.


2) Clarification of Your funds. You are also kindly asked to clarify the source of the funds on Your account. If the funds are your own, please forward documents of your property / possible income (for example your wage slips etc.). In case someone is sponsoring you, please forward his/her statement of accounts from the last 3 months and also documentation of the origin of his/her funds (wage slips, employment contract or other documents which indicate his/her income or property).

Since you have told them it is your parents that will be sponsoring you, i will advice you show them the statement. Anything contrary to that may end up negative decision. So start working towards that before you are told to send their statement.

I am speaking from experience. All the best
Re: Finland by echometry(m): 4:45pm On Aug 18, 2011

Pls choose4me, overloved& others help.

@esko,u'ld b notified thru ur mail if ur applicatn av bn granted or denied nd afterwards asks dat u either bring ur pasport personaly or thru courier 4 stampin if granted.am nt sure they stamp ur passport if denied.besides,wen did they end d interview?
Re: Finland by esko: 5:11pm On Aug 19, 2011
@echometry, they ended interview for d year on d 11th of August, 2011. Are u really sure the Finnish Embassy would accept passport through courier if application is approved? Because if so, then I hav no problem as I can travel to Trnc if no decision comes b4 d expiration of my visa. Thereafter, I would courier my passport down to naija from trnc if I get any notification.(to and fro, I know Dhl does that for Australian embassy and others), then once I receive bak my pspt from courier, I would then leave Trnc for Finland. Does it happen like that for real? Pls @echometry, confirm or better still post link for my personal confirmation.tnx assy and others), then once I receive bak my pspt from courier, I would then leave Trnc for Finland. Does it happen like that for real? Pls @echometry, confirm or better still post link for my personal confirmation.tnx
Re: Finland by mbatuku1: 7:14pm On Aug 19, 2011
@ capiti

pls how much is the least amount expected to be in my parents account if they are sponsoring me?
Re: Finland by echometry(m): 9:30pm On Aug 19, 2011
@ esko,my frnd dat went last yr sent his passport thru dhl 2 d embassy wen granted bt he made payment for its return wen they stamped it.he was also given d option of bringin it personaly if he wishes.
Re: Finland by capiti: 9:52pm On Aug 19, 2011
@mbatuku1 There is no specific amount but what they want to see is the inflows and outflows of cash in the account. When i did mine last year my sponsors account had about 1.2million.

@echometry I dont know if that will be advisable but if your sponsor has an account already, i will suggests you fund that account instead cos they will require 3 months statement.
Re: Finland by mbatuku1: 10:20am On Aug 20, 2011
What if I'm sponsoring myself, how much is expected to be in my account?

@capiti

pls can you send me a link to ****@yahoo.com. I'll like to ask a private question? Thanks

Clarification of Your funds:

1) Statement of account issued by your bank indicating all transactions to and from your bank account starting from June 2011 until this date. The statement needs to indicate the account owner's name and the currency of the deposit. Please note that the bank account is to be under your name and solely in your use. Please spesify also the origin of your funds.

2) You have stated that your uncle is sponsoring your studies in Finland. Please forward documentation of the origin of your uncle's funds (pay slips, employment contract or other documents which indicate his income/assets/the origin of the funds) along with an official statement of account issued by your uncle's bank indicating all transactions to and from his account starting from June 2011 until this date.

Please send the information to the Finnish Immigration Service within two weeks from the date of this letter. All the documents are to be sent via a Finnish embassy, the embassy is required to see the originals of all the necessary documents. The matter may be decided by the Finnish Immigration Service whether the applicant complies with the stipulated time or not. You should note, however, that lack of any information requested may be to your disadvantage.

Most importantly thing is that you should be truthful in answering the questions at the Finnish embassy.

Hope you will get one nairalander that will give you hints.

Finnish people are straight forward and good people.
Re: Finland by toskybrown(f): 7:54pm On Mar 08, 2013
hello peeps, i need your help. i am married to a Finnish citizen based in Spain.we legalized our marriage certificate with the Finnish embassy in abuja and also the necessary documents so i cld join my husband in spain.The spanish embassy in lagos have been so uncooperative since i got married last june.i finally applied for my resident visa on the 18th of January 2012.
I was not called until the 6th of this month and my visa was refused base on not giving them the legalized marriage document from Finland which was not true.The Spanish embassy have not been helpful at all.
My husband has decided that we should go through his home country so i could join him in spain by requesting for a visiting visa at the Finnish embassy .we are presenting our marriage certificate and all the necessary documents but i would want someone to enlighten me on the process and what our chances would be.thanks

Hello nairalanders. I have been following your wonderful posts all these while and I have to say that am really thrilled. I will be applying soon for a master programme @ a finnish uni but am practically interested in the issue of finances. I studied Electronics and Computer Engineering and would really like some1 to throw more light on the issue of finances coz I believe that's the most important thing to any embassy. My sponsor is thinking of depositing about 12500euros in my account for the 2 years master studies. Any other need for his own bank statement and fund declaration stuffs

that's way too much.. you only need to show proof of funds for one year at a time and that's about 6720euros.. you'll still need to present your sponsors SOA.. follow the other study in Finland thread.. you'll get more up to date info there
