When it is likely that the application will be granted, the applicant may upon request be granted a residence permit that runs until the administrative decision is made.
The provision in the first paragraph does not apply to foreign nationals who apply for a residence permit under chapter 4.
The provision in section 60, third paragraph, (a) to (c), applies correspondingly. A residence permit under this paragraph does not provide a basis for a permanent residence permit.
Chapters IV to VI of the Public Administration Act do not apply to administrative decisions concerning residence permits under this section.
The King may issue regulations containing further provisions.
