Immigrants in Finland who want to bring their dependents to the country must apply for the Finland family visa. A Finland family visa is given to immediate family members of immigrants who have a residence permit. The following dependents can come to Finland on this visa:
Make sure you have all of your documentation ready: Gather all of the required paperwork for the application, and ensure that any required documents are legalized if necessary. Check with the embassy before starting to collect your documents to acquire a list of requirements and which documents need to be legalized. Extra documentation may be requested by embassies. If your documents aren’t in English, Finnish, or Swedish, they’ll need to be translated.
Make an application for a visa: You can apply for a visa after you have everything ready. You can either apply online using the e-service or in person at a Finnish mission near you. In either case, you are the only one who can submit the application; even if you give them permission, they will not be able to do it on your behalf.
Visit the Finnish mission in your area: You must go to your local embassy/consulate to provide your fingerprints and confirm your identity as soon as you complete your application. Bring the actual documents you attached to your online application as well.
Wait for a response: A Finland family visa might take anything from 2 to 9 months to process. The online application will be processed faster than the paper application. The processing period will be extended if something is missing from your application, so be sure you have everything the first time you submit your papers.
Go to Finland: The Immigration Office will submit your residency card to the embassy when your application has been processed and you have received a favorable response. You can pick it up and then travel to Finland whenever you’re ready. You must register at a local registration office once you arrive.
