Press release

Due to the coronavirus situation, the Finnish Immigration Service interrupted all asylum interviews until further notice from 16 March 2020 onwards. We are continuing asylum interviews on a limited basis as of 14 April 2020.

We will conduct interviews only in premises where this is safe, taking into account the coronavirus situation. Because of this, we cannot arrange interviews with all of those who would normally be next to receive invitations. We are starting with the applications estimated most urgent and where the interview can be held.

Asylum seeker: You do not have to take any action

If you are about to have an asylum interview, we will make you an appointment and you will receive an invitation to the interview. The exact address and time of the interview is given in the invitation. 

You will be notified separately if your asylum interview is cancelled

You will be notified separately if your asylum interview, service of your asylum decision, or other meeting with the Finnish Immigration Service is cancelled. We will make you a new appointment as soon as possible. You will then receive a new invitation.
