Resettlement Statistics


The following table provides an overview of persons admitted under various Government programmes and does not reflect the numbers currently in the country. Arrangements for the admission of persons under Government programmes differ depending on the type of programme.

In cases where large groups are being evacuated in an emergency situation for temporary protection (e.g. the Kosovars in 1999), the new arrivals are usually placed in Reception Centres where their immediate accommodation, medical, social welfare, etc. needs are met. Persons admitted under this type of programme are admitted for a short period with a view to their returning to their country of origin when the crisis is over. The fields in the box under the table give access to more details about the numbers of persons admitted and the countries of origin.
