Description topics

Total asylum requests
Total asylum requests are the number of first asylum requests and subsequent requests added together. An asylum seeker may submit additional requests. For example, if there is evidence of new facts or circumstances. Therefore, the total number of asylum requests refers to the number of procedures related to the asylum requests. As of 2016, the number of first asylum requests includes those applicants who have been relocated. Following family members are not included in the total number of asylum requests.

Asylum requests:
Requests for asylum are applications to be admitted as refugee by persons from another country. Asylum requests are submitted by persons who have left their home country for various reasons in order to seek protection or asylum in another country.
First asylum requests (persons)
First asylum requests are requests by persons from another country seeking permission to be admitted as refugees. These requests are submitted by persons who have left their own country for various reasons in order to seek protection or asylum in another country. As of 2016, the number of first asylum requests includes those applicants who have been relocated.
Nationalities will be listed separately in the datasets once the number of asylum requests from people holding this nationality has exceeded 50 within a period of twelve months. As a result, the sum of the detailed data may deviate from the total number.


Subsequent asylum requests
An asylum seeker may submit multiple requests, for example, when new facts or circumstances emerge.
