Softer rules planned for asylum-seekers with babies

The government plans milder conditions for asylum-seekers who have children with Swedish residents. Talking to Swedish Radio, migration minister Tobias Billström referred to the rule that requires a six-month’s absence from Sweden for persons who want to apply for a residence permit because they have a child with a partner living here.

Billström said that in the future there would be room for exceptions from that rule. He said it didn’t seem right that new families should be split up or that mothers of small babies should be forced to leave the country for a longer period of time.
