1 Monthly statistics December 2013: Forced returns from Norway The National Police Immigration Service (NPIS) forcibly returned 483 persons in December of those forcibly returned in December 2013 had a criminal conviction in Norway. The NPIS forcibly returned 5934 persons in 2013 in total, 2224 of whom had a criminal conviction in Norway. This latter figure represents an all-time annual high. The NPIS is responsible for forcibly returning those who are not entitled to stay in Norway. The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) is responsible for voluntary returns. Compared with 2012: Forced returns As of 31/12/ As of 31/12/ Change in percent 21 Delays in the registration process may mean that the real figure is higher. Convicted offenders Returning convicted offenders is a priority. 164 convicted offenders were returned in December This is an increase of 17 per cent compared with December

2 The most common nationalities among convicted offenders returned in 2013 were citizens of Romania (21 %), Nigeria (11 %) and Poland (10 %). These three nationalities also topped the 2012 statistics. Minors In December 2013, the police returned 48 minors, of which 47 were accompanied by their parents. As a rule, Norwegian authorities do not attempt to verify the age of unaccompanied minors when they are to be returned to another European country under the Dublin Regulation. All returned unaccompanied minors must be met by either family members or others who will care for them, e.g. representatives of relevant institutions or the child welfare services in the country in question. Forced returns on chartered flights Eight returnee flights were chartered in 2013, one of them in December. Returnees by destination and citizenship Destination means the country the person is returned to, not necessarily the person's home country (or country of nationality). The various returnee categories The NPIS returns persons who have no legal right to stay in Norway, i.e. not only persons who have had their application for asylum and any appeals rejected. 1) Asylum anyone seeking refuge (asylum) in Norway and who have had their application processed and rejected in Norway and who have exhausted all avenues of appeal. 2) Dublin anyone returned under the Dublin Regulation. The Dublin Regulation applies in the EU, Norway and Iceland, and governs where an application for 2

3 asylum will be processed. The purpose of the Regulation is to prevent asylum seekers from applying in multiple countries, but also to ensure that one of the countries assumes responsibility for the asylum seeker. 3) Other includes persons who have been expelled or denied entry. Most of the returnees in this category were expelled after being convicted of crimes. The overview of the destinations of the returnees can be found in a separate table at the end.
