Finland tightens the rules of family reunification because of refugees.
The Government of Finland announced the tightening of rules for family reunification because of the large influx of refugees whose relatives may want to come to Suomi. This is reported by YLE.
Finland has already adopted about 30 thousand refugees and in the near future expects a flurry of applications from their relatives to reunite the family. The Immigration Office claims that refugees on average indicate three relatives who they would like to transport to Finland.
The government decided to tighten the rules for family reunification already at the beginning of next year, and finalize them in the coming years. Finnish Interior Minister Petteri Orpo (Petteri Orpo) is already working on relevant changes in the legislation.
Now a refugee who wants to bring his relatives to Finland will have to prove that he has money to support their life in the country. For example, a family with two children must have at least 2,600 euros of monthly income to take advantage of the possibility of family reunification. Another condition is the availability of housing. The government also intends to introduce the minimum number of years that a refugee must live in Finland before he can file for family reunification. The European Union recommends introducing a minimum of two years of residence in the country. Another obstacle to family reunification is Finnish or Swedish. The refugee will have to prove his knowledge of one of the official languages of Finland. Perhaps this will include an oral or written examination. Relatives who come to Finland must also confirm a certain level of ownership of Finnish or Swedish.
However, the Immigration Office emphasizes that the above selection criteria & ndash; this is just a project, the details of which will be discussed. For example, the department doubts that relatives of refugees from Syria will be able to prove their knowledge of the Finnish language.
