Next year Finland will resettle 200 Myanmar refugees from Thailand, 150 Congolese refugees from Rwanda and 300 Afghans from Iran.

Finland is also prepared to take in an additional 100 emergency cases.

Within its refugee quota, Finland accepts for resettlement persons defined as refugees by the UNHCR (Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and others who are in need of international protection. The refugee quota is verified in the state budget for each year.
