Asylum interview with an unaccompanied minor asylum seeker

An asylum seeker who is under 18 years of age and arrived in Finland alone always has his or her representative with him or her in the asylum interview. In addition, a legal counsel (a lawyer or a social worker from the reception centre) may also participate in the interview.

If you have a special reason why you need to bring another support person with you to your asylum interview, the interviewer will decide whether this person may participate.
