Reports by the Country Information Service

On this page, you can read more extensive reports and surveys by the Country Information Service on different countries and themes.

The reports of the Country Information Service are general views on the situation of asylum seekers in their country of origin. They are not judicial assessments and do not assess whether a person coming from a certain country can be granted international protection in Finland based on his or her home region. An assessment of the security situation in the country of origin, based on up-to-date information, is carried out when a decision is made on each individual asylum application. These surveys and reports are published only a few times a year and do not include all countries of origin.
