Due to high amounts of refugees crossing European boarder and seeking asylum or residence permit in Finland, authorities and courts are swamped with cases. That has resulted to the long waiting time on asylum or residence permit decisions in Finland. The way to start asylum process is when the person arrives at the border of Finland they need to inform police of frontier guards that they are seeking an asylum. This will initiate the asylum process and the person is sent to a reception center where all asylum seekers are placed.
There is five possible way to acquire residence permit in Finland:
1) Studying reason
