Migration law

Easier for abused immigrants to stay

Published fredag 21 oktober 2011 kl 20.07

People who come to Sweden for love, but are then subjected to violence by their partner and subsequently end the relationship will now have an easier time obtaining permanent residency, reports news agency TT.

This was the decision of Sweden’s migration court today. Until now, the requirements for such a person to stay have been high. The court today ruled that it is sufficient if there are reasonable grounds to believe that an individual has been physically abused.

Particular attention will also now be paid to ensuring that the abused receives assistance in seeking help if needed.
