everyone! Please bear with me, I am absolutely panicking and have worried I have absolutely miscalculated the time I have been in Finland. I am trying to do the right thing and honestly am at a loss.
My backstory: I am American, but am studying my PhD in Germany and have a German residency permit, as a result. My partner is Finnish, and living in Espoo, FI. We have dated about two years, and I have visited Finland every so often for short periods of time (a week, or two weeks, generally) over those two years.
Recently, I came to stay on March 21, 2021. I've had some severe health issues with kidney stones, and have been in and out of the hospital here in Espoo during that time. I am struggling to walk, am miserable and in pain, and have been essentially bedridden with my partner caring for me. I am still in pain to the point where I honestly don't think I can hop on a flight back to Germany -- I live totally alone there, with no support.
I am wildly terrified I may have accidentally overstayed. I have not been here for 90 days, yet -- I arrived on March 21. However, I have visited my partner a few times over the past few years and am not sure how to calculate those past visits in with my current visit. I honestly don't know what to do, am a mess, and struggling to find accurate info online about what I need to do or how to calculate my time. Would anyone be willing to talk to me and walk me through it? Is there a way I can contact someone here in Finland for a temporary stay extension, if need be?
I do believe that if I calculate my past visits (short stays in Nov., Dec., and early March), I might be 4-5 days over the 90/180 day limit.
Thank you so much, in advance! I am feeling terrified and pressed for time, and would love any support. I have emailed Raja, Migri, the American embassy, and the local police stations, asking their opinion, as well.
