Temporary Asylum Law Expires Friday
Sweden’s temporary law giving asylum seekers, whose application has been rejected, a second chance to obtain a residence permit expires Friday.
The law which is valid until March 31 focuses on those asylum seekers whose deportation orders were not carried out.
Sine the law was implemented late last year the Swedish Migration Board has handled some 15,000 cases.
Of those 15,000 about half have been granted residence in Sweden.
Starting Saturday a new law will be implemented, where rejected asylum seekers will have an opportunity for their case to be heard in special Migration courts set up in Sweden’s three largest cities; Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.
