Palestinians from Syria in Sweden Grappling with Thorny Family Reunification Procedures

Hundreds of Palestinian-Syrian families displaced to Lebanon, Turkey, and Egypt have sounded distress signals over delays in the family reunification process in Sweden which last for up to 18 months.

Rental fees in Turkey and Lebanon have hit $450 per month. The situation is exacerbated by the upsurge the cost of living and the frailty of the refugees’ legal status.

The Swedish Immigration Department attributed the delay in family reunification to difficulties in coping with the simmering pressure exerted on its staff members.

Palestinian Syrian refugees seeking asylum in Sweden said the delay makes part of a behind-closed-doors policy pursued by the Swedish government to rein in the influx of refugees to the kingdom. Sweden also suspended granting long-term visas for refugees and has instead been handing them out residence permits for 13 months or three years only.
