3800 Rejected Asylum Seekers Request Reviews
Two weeks after the new law on asylum went into effect here, more than 3800 underground and rejected asylum-seekers have applied to have their cases reviewed.
This is somewhat less than the immigration authorities’ expectations.
So far 69 of the re-applicants have received permanent residence permits, 4 have been given temporary permits, and 4 have had their applications rejected again.
It’s unknown how many rejected asylum-seekers have gone underground in Sweden. It is possible that many will not seek reviews under the new law, as they could still be expelled from the country.
