The Interior Ministry may consider setting up a supervised centre for asylum seekers if the registration backlog continues to pile up at the police stations.
According to the law, an asylum seeker may spend a maximum of eight days at a supervised centre. Therefore, a supervised centre is not a permanent solution but it could help reduce the backlog and also offer shelter during cold nights.
The decision to establish a possible supervised centre will be made by the government.
The Interior Ministry said the authorities and the Finnish Red Cross have succeeded in finding accommodation for asylum seekers. 
Efforts to find more suitable facilities for setting up reception centres continue.
Mutual pension insurance company Ilmarinen which is one of the largest real estate investor in the country said it will find out this week whether there are empty properties in different parts of the country which could be suitable for accommodation of asylum seekers.
So far, two matching properties have been found both of which are in the capital city region.
