Integration plan

An integration plan supports immigrants’ access to society as equal members, especially in the early stage of immigration. It is an individual and personal plan to support integration, which the immigrant prepares in cooperation with the local-level authorities (municipality and/or the TE Office).

Services and measures that will support the immigrants in learning Finnish or Swedish and help them acquire other knowledge and skills needed in society and the labour market are laid out in the integration plan.

However, immigrants do not have a subjective right to the measures or services laid out in the plan, unless this right is based on legislation other than the Integration Act.
