The Ministry of the Interior is responsible for the performance management of the Finnish Immigration Service

The Finnish Immigration Service operates under the steering of the Ministry of the Interior. The Finnish Immigration Service processes asylum applications and is responsible for the steering, planning and supervision of the daily work of reception centres. In addition, the Finnish Immigration Service compiles information in support of political decision-making and national and international cooperation.

The Ministry of the Interior is responsible for the performance management of the Finnish Immigration Service, which means that — alongside the agency — the Ministry agrees on the performance targets for the budget year and the resources required to meet such targets.
