Swedish Riksdag Votes to Ease Family Reunification for Holders of Subsidiary Protection

The Swedish Parliament (Riksdag) extended on Tuesday immigration laws for another couple of years so as to lift some restrictions on family reunification for refugees already in Sweden.

The new decision will enable the wives and children of refugees with subsidiary protection to join them. Minors aged below 18 will also be able to reunite with their parents. The new amendments are to be put in effect starting July 20 until July 2021.

Over the past few years, in response to growing numbers of refugees claiming asylum in Sweden, the Swedish government tightened border controls and made it increasingly difficult for migrants to claim a residency permit or to reunite with family members already in Sweden.
