Germany is providing 10.200 places within the EU-Resettlement scheme. The individuals will be calculated into the annual immigration span of 160.000 to 220.000 persons, as agreed upon in the coalition treaty. A new admission order by the Ministry of Interior has been released on December 11, 2018, providing 2.900 resettlement places for refugees out of Jordan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Lebanon and Niger (via the UNHCR evacuation mechanism for Libya).
This admission is based on the European Commission’s recommendation to provide a total of 50.000 resettlement places in the EU until October 2019. 20 Member States have pledged over 50.000 places and 10 Member States have currently already resettled 4.252 persons (state of play: 16.05.2018).
50% of the pledged resettlements should have occurred by October 2018. The resettlement places are still foreseen for refugees currently residing in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. At the same time, another focus will be the resettlement out of Libya, Egypt, Niger, Sudan, Chad and Ethiopia.
In the table below you can obtain an overview of the resettlement admissions from 2015 to 2018. Under the following links information on the resettlement admissions that took place from Turkey and the humanitarian admissions currently taking place from Turkey as part of the EU-Turkey Statement and a report on the group admissions from Turkey already carried out is provided in German.
