EU Relocation

Encouragement and realism - how to get a job in Finland as an asylum seeker?


“How do you pay taxes in Finland?”. This question by an Eritrean asylum seeker illustrates one big differences between countries. The Finnish taxation procedures can seem tricky since in Eritrea taxes are reimbursed after your employment ends. This and many other aspects of the Finnish working life aroused interest at the pilot training sessions organized by IOM for asylum seekers in a reception center.

The training pilots were carried out as part of EU relocation programme funded by the the European Union.
