Subsequent applications

You can submit a new asylum application if you have received a final decision on your previous application. If your previous decision can still be appealed, the decision is not final.

Submitting a new asylum application

If you need to submit a new asylum application, tell this to the police or the border control authorities. When you do that, report your new grounds for asylum and all additional information immediately. This is important because the Finnish Immigration Service will conduct a preliminary investigation based on this information and decide whether you have new asylum grounds or new evidence.

Do not wait until the asylum interview at the Finnish Immigration Service to present your additional information and new grounds. A new asylum interview will only be arranged if you have presented new grounds or evidence influencing the decision.

Processing of subsequent applications

The Finnish Immigration Service will conduct a preliminary investigation on each new asylum application.

A new asylum interview will be conducted, if you have presented new asylum grounds or new additional information that you did not present in your previous application and in your first asylum interview.

If you have not presented new grounds or evidence, your application will be dismissed.
