The Finnish Immigration Service has updated its exact count of people who came to Finland in 2015 to seek asylum. A total of 32,478 registered asylum-seekers entered Finland last year, the FIS said on Twitter on Friday.
On Thursday, New Year’s Eve, 39 asylum-seekers arrived. On the busiest days of autumn hundreds of asylum-seekers were registered daily. The biggest rush was in September when some 4,000 migrants were registered.
In July the Ministry of the Interior estimated that 15,000 asylum-seekers would come to Finland in 2015. That figure was doubled in the beginning of September. The highest educated guess was at 50,000.
