Integration compensations to municipalities

The Ministry for Employment and the Economy and the Development and Administration Centre have studied the instructions to municipalities for compensation applications in accordance with the act concerning promotion of integration. The Development and Administration Centre gave the general instructions to the municipalities / ELY Centres on 15.12.2015.

The municipalities are to be supported in increased administrative tasks of immigration by trainings organised in spring 2016.

More information about this can be found on the ELY Centres' web site and the immigration services of the Ministry of Employment and the Economy at

Compensation for those representing asylum seekers who have arrived in Finland alone as minors

The development and administration centre of ELY Centres and TE Offices pays, by application, the compensations of the representative named for the child. The fee is based on the time spent for the tasks of the representative and the expenses incurred by the representation for the compensation when the representative has been appointed based on a law provided for the promotion of integration or for reception of a person seeking international protection and the child has been granted a residence permit.

Once the child who has applied for international protection has been granted a residence permit, the Finnish Immigration Service will pay the representative's fee and travel expenses until the applicant has been informed about residence permit decision – this includes the notification date. The forms attached here can be used for the representatives' fees and travel expenses applied from the Development and Administration Centre. If the minor does not have a residence permit, or the residence permit decision is negative, the compensation is to be applied from the Finnish Immigration Service. The right for the representative's fee and travel expenses will end when the person represented gets Finnish nationality.
