In the Border Interview Survey visitors refer to all non-resident persons who visit Finland and stay in Finland for a time period of less than 12 months. Being specified as a visitor is not dependent on the main reason for the visit to Finland. A person arriving on a visit to Finland for whom Finland is the usual environment, e.g. who has a job in Finland, is also classified as a visitor.
