Increased refugee quota, one-month target for processing asylum applications
According to HS, the government programme calls for an increase in Finland’s complement of quota refugees to 850 in 2020, from the current 750. Thereafter the number will be reviewed depending on the number of applicants, within the range of 850 to 1,050. The incoming administration also set a one-month target for processing asylum applications.
The use of ankle monitors will be considered in cases where asylum applications are rejected. The new government also aims to look into reported problems relating to family reunification cases, ensuring children’s best interests and income requirements set for family members seeking re unification under international protection.
