Hi, I'm currently in Singapore working and my fiance is Swedish and we want to start our lives together in Sweden the soonest as possible. We are planning for me to apply short term visa under visit and family and friends, to visit him during springtime in Sweden and get married there while on vacation. We are aware that I have to go back to Singapore and do my application for the residency permit from there. The Embassy of Denmark (In-charge of of visa processing for all Scandinavian countries in Singapore) is very particular on the consequences for such violations. Unfortunately, based on the specified processing time when we did trial application online, it will take 14-17 months for the processing time for the residency permit. We really want to be together the soonest, we waited 6 years so we hope not to wait furthermore. We are hoping that we could do both tourist visa and residence permit application at the same time. Is it allowed? If not, I will look for a job in Sweden. Is it a faster option? Or can I apply for work permit while I have my ongoing residence permit application? Is there other means for me to move to Sweden faster? We would really appreciate if you could give us inputs and information to expedite the process. Thank you!
