Frontex provides support to Finland


With the expansion of the Joint Operation Terra 2023, Frontex deployed additional guard officers and other staff, along with equipment such as patrol cars, to bolster Finland’s border control activities.

This rapid mobilisation of resources is reflective of Frontex’s important role in ensuring European border security, demonstrating its ability to adapt and respond swiftly to the emerging needs of Member States. Finland’s external borders, which span 1 340 km, are also the EU’s borders, making their security a matter of collective European concern.
