Denmark Grants Palestinians from Syria Political Asylum

The Danish Immigration Service announced its decision to provide Palestinians from Syria with political asylum rather than humanitarian asylum, on conditions that they carry UNRWA registration cards or other documents proving that they are recognized as Palestinian refugees by UNRWA.

A Palestinian who fled Syria to Denmark told AGPS that refugees seeking to renew their visas are forced by the Danish authorities to sign a document in which he/she pledges to return to the homeland as soon as warfare is brought to a halt.

The refugee said the asylum applications submitted by the Palestinians from Syria have been reconsidered after the latter filed complaints in which they said they cannot return to their countries of origin and face strict conditions as they are categorized as “stateless”.

The Danish Immigration Service decided on August 29 to renew asylum applications filed by migrants from UNRWA’s following fields of operations: Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank.

One of the following three types of visas is often granted in Denmark: political asylum, humanitarian asylum, and temporary protection. The latter is valid for one renewable year and its holder becomes entitled to family reunification only after three years.

Over recent years, successive right-wing governments in Denmark backed up by the far right-wing Danish People’s Party have opted for anti-migration policies.
