Millions needed to improve Swedish asylum system
Wednesday, 02 March 2011
The Swedish immigration Service is seeking additional resources from the government to the tune of Skr600 million for the next four years.

The money is needed to meet the need to deal with continued large influx of asylum seekers into the country. Without the additional resources, processing times will get longer again and might make the immigration system less efficient.

The number of asylum seekers grew sharply last year and is expected to remain at a high level in future years. The recent developments in North Africa may lead to a rapid increase in asylum seekers.
