The Finnish Immigration Service asks if you mind being deported

by , under Enrique Tessieri

The Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) has sent at least to students with B residence permits the following letter with the question: Does the person concerned object to being forced to leave the country and being prohibited from entering the country?

You may ask why such a question has been sent.

Migrant Tales to one such student with a B residence permit about the question sent by Migri.

“I was offended,” the person said. “From having one of the friendliest immigration services it has slumped to the same level as Estonia and Germany.”

“So what was my answer,” the person continued. “Of course I object being deported. One human right that I have is freedom of movement.”

Here is the question sent by Migri to a student with a B residence permit in Finland. “Does the person concerned object to being forced to leave the country and being prohibited from entering the country?” How would you answer? Would you mind being deported from Finland?

The letter may be just another example of Finland’s ever-stricter immigration laws. Should we be surprised considering how much the government of Prime Minister Juha Sipilä has tightened immigration laws.
