Alarms Raised over Delays in Asylum Procedures in Sweden

The Swedish Information Center said scores of staff members at migration courts risk to be laid off due to shortage in migration funds.

The centre said migrants who re-submitted asylum, citizenship, and family reunification applications have to wait for long periods of time to have their demands considered by migration courts.

The crisis has been attributed to a sharp cut in the 2020 budget allotted to the Swedish Migration Agency and courts specialized in asylum and migration affairs.

In Sweden, eligibility for citizenship is granted after a four-year stay in the kingdom. No other prerequisites have been set by Sweden for citizenship applications. Children of Palestinians from Syria who were born in Sweden and one of whose parents has got a permanent residence permit are systematically granted citizenship.

However, the time-span allocated for examining applications for visas or family reunification submitted by refugees from Syria is often estimated as being very long.

According to estimates by the Swedish Migration Office, more than 22,100 Palestinian refugees from Syria obtained Swedish citizenship by the end of 2018.
