Citizenship interview questions

Post by nokiassa » Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:55 pm


So I just finished applying citizenship application online and booked a meeting with Migri next 1 month.

I wonder what kind of questions (in Finnish) they would ask me during the appointment? (As I'm not confidence in my speaking skills)
Do I also need to have an attested copy of my YKI certificate or just a normal copy is enough?
Anything else should I bring apart from what were attached in my application?(i.e may be my passport photos?)

Firstly, by doing a quick search you would get your answer...

Secondly it depends.. Different people have different experiences.

Thirdly, anything you have submitted along with your online application, take the original documents with you.
Just visited Migri with my citizenship application and was there over 20min. :shock: Every single paper was carefully examined and I had a very chatty clerk apparently and while we were discussing weather and how good is it that there are no tsunamis in Finland I was thinking about being late for work because I reserved only those 5 minutes for this. :lol: So those 30min appointments can actually last 30 minutes. :lightbulb:

You'll find your answer in this thread.

Hei, there is no interview, you will be only showing the originals of each document that you submitted to the system. The officer will ask some simple things.. as if 'can you show me this doc. give me that doc.' etc. At least in my case, we didn't have a long chat with the officer, she was very kind, and explained some issues regarding the process, and I did a short explanation for my future plans (but it felt like that talk was quite friendly and off-the-record). That was it. Wishing you success at your application!

There is no interview. Just small chat while checking the original documents. In total it lasted 50 seconds...
