Delays in the processing of citizenship applications in October

Press release

Unfortunately there will be delays in the processing of citizenship applications in October. The Finnish Immigration Service is piloting the partial automation of the processing of citizenship applications, and this is causing some delay.

The goal of the agency is that routine tasks, such as the various register checks, could in the future be performed automatically. In this way, the employees of the agency could focus on the more complex cases that require investigation.

We apologise for the delays.
