Finland suspends the reception and processing of residence permit applications in the missions
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Finland has suspended the reception of residence permit applications in Finland’s missions from 19 March until further notice. Applications for residence permits that have already been submitted will be initiated in the normal manner and forwarded to the Finnish Immigration Service for consideration. Interviews related to residence permit applications have also been suspended for the time being.
Information on when these exceptional arrangements will terminate will be announced later. The missions will provide more detailed information on possible country-specific arrangements.
