When is the interview?

The Finnish Immigration Service tries to organise your asylum interview as soon as possible after you have applied for asylum. However, if we are processing a large number of asylum applications, it may take some time before we are able to interview you. All you need to do is to wait.

The Finnish Immigration Service will select a time for your asylum interview and send you an invitation to it. The invitation states the language into which your interview will be interpreted, as well as the exact location and time of the interview.

You cannot change the interview time. If you for example fall ill, notify your reception centre immediately. The employees of the reception centre will contact the Finnish Immigration Service.
