More Lenient Rules for Asylum Seekers with Children

Published tisdag 25 mars 2008 kl 12.55

The head of the Swedish Migration Board Dan Eliasson has called for more lenient rulings regarding asylum seekers who have children with Swedish nationals.

Currently, asylum seekers must return to their home country in order to request a residence permit from there, regardless whether they have children with a Swedish national or not. In an interview with the daily Dagens Nyheter, Dan Eliasson criticised this enforced practice as being straight from the Stone Ages. The Minister for Migration Tobias Billström preferred not to comment on the matter and simply issued a press statement that it was a “complicated question”.
