Description

These statistics describe the foreign citizens permanently resident in Finland who have been granted Finnish nationality during the statistical year. A citizen of a foreign country may receive Finnish citizenship after six years’ of residence in Finland. A foreign citizen who has been married to a Finnish citizen and lived in Finland for three years may be granted Finnish citizenship. Finnish citizenship can be granted through an application procedure or a declaration procedure, but the data of Statistics Finland does not contain information on this. Finnish citizenships acquired at birth are not included in these statistics.
