Integration of immigrants

""

Immigrants are provided orientation in Finland so they learn how to act in the country. An integration plan that includes integration training is drawn up for immigrants.

This training includes, among other things,

  • learning Finnish or Swedish
  • finding a job or a place of study, and
  • becoming familiar with Finnish society.

Integration allowance for immigrants

If you are an unemployed immigrant and you already have an integration plan, you can receive integration allowance and maintenance allowance during integration training. The integration allowance is of an equal amount and determined on the same grounds as ordinary labour market subsidy.

The integration allowance is also means-tested, which means that, besides your own income, your parents’ income affects the amount of the allowance if you live in the same household with them.

For more information about integrations, see the Infopankki website.
