Asylum Seekers Sent Back Faster

The time taken to send back failed asylum seekers has halved, according to Swedish broadsheet Dagens Nyheter.

A year ago it took 449 days, now just 211. To encourage more Iraqis, Somalis, Afghan and Gaza residents to return, the support budget for each family has been raised from around 6,500 to 9,500 USD per family. In the first quarter of last year the Swedish Migration Board undertook 8,020 repatriations, this year the number was 11,476.
