100,903 UNHCR Submissions and 53,362 departures
January - November 2022
This page presents the most up-to-date data on UNHCR’s resettlement activities. The Resettlement Data Portal contains information from 2003 to the most recent reporting period. The Portal is updated on the 17th of each month. The information presented here shows the total number of refugees (persons) who were submitted for resettlement by UNHCR to States and who departed for resettlement during the reporting period.
Refugees are identified as in need of resettlement when they have particular needs or vulnerabilities in their country of asylum and cannot return to their country of origin. The chart below shows UNHCR submissions of cases based on resettlement categories further explained in UNHCR’s Resettlement Handbook.
Some data presented on this portal may differ from statistics published previously due to retroactive changes or the inclusion of previously unavailable data. In addition, both resettlement submission and departure figures reported by UNHCR may not match resettlement statistics published by States as Government figures may include submissions received outside of UNHCR resettlement processes. UNHCR figures may also include cases in which UNHCR assisted, i.e. obtained exit permits for humanitarian admissions or family reunion but did not initially submit. For Government statistics on the arrival of resettled refugees, please consult the relevant Government immigration/asylum websites.
All resettlement statistics for 2022 are provisional and subject to change. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
