Asylum seekers who receive resident permits will find migration to the Helsinki metropolitan area more difficult, reported the national broadcaster Yle.
 
About a month ago, the Finnish Immigration Service issued guidance to reception centres which outlined that migration of asylum seekers to the capital city region should not be financially supported.
 
In practice, an asylum seeker should have a study placement or a job before moving to Helsinki region, so that he or she can receive payment commitment for rental home security deposit.
 
The Ministry of Employment and the Economy revealed its integration plan in February.
 
The ministry would like to place asylum-seeking residents in different parts of Finland in order to avoid flooding of urban centres. 
 
The aim of the plan is to identify the skills of resident permit holders so they can then be placed in locations where housing and employment are available.
