What is asylum seeking in Finland?
The Asylum in Finland website tells people how they may seek asylum in Finland. It also gives the criteria based on which asylum may be granted or refused.
The website provides information on the processing of an asylum application and on the activity of the reception centres for asylum seekers in Finland. It also tells how a residence permit may be obtained based on family ties, study or work.
The Asylum in Finland website is available in English, Arabic, Dari and Somali. The site is maintained by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland in cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior.
