the DN has previously reported about persons who disappeared after a deportation order, or in connection with the application for a residence permit.
After a record number of people sought asylum in Sweden during 2014 and 2015, both the migration board and the border police assumed that the number of people who do not follow its expulsion order, or otherwise strays will increase. The last ten years, the number of avvikna been approximately between 5.000 and 9.000 people per year.
In the Migration oktoberprognos 2017 stated that over 12,000 people were expected to disappear in 2018. In the forecast published in October of this year was the same figure 6.200. Now expected to be even fewer. So far this year, nearly 6,000 cases at the Swedish migration board is handed over to the police after the people deviated from their contact with the authorities. Of the people who departed in the year is still 4.068 persons notified as avvikna, according to the Swedish migration board.
Nearly a quarter of these are children, of which 200 are unaccompanied.
the process owner in the asylum at the Swedish migration board. He sees several explanations for the figure lower than expected. Among other things, the new so-called gymnasielagen made that more previously been refused their asylum application and in connection with it, perhaps, deviated – has been given a new chance to a residence permit.
– Since it happens a lot during a year, there has also been a small increase among those who changed tracks and, for example, applied for a residence permit for work.
Although the number of people deported under the so-called Dublin regulation, that is to say, where another EU country should examine the person's right to a residence permit, have been fewer than expected, " says Bengtsson. According to him, it is a group where a relatively large proportion differs.
To fewer than expected deviated, however, has not to do with more of his own accord following his deportation order, " says Magnus Bengtsson.
" No, we see no clear trend. We have a goal of 55 percent of our cases should be to return voluntarily. Now we are at 51 and last year it was 54.
if those who deviated from its contact with the authorities, remain in the country or if they left Sweden.
Magnus Bengtsson says that the Swedish migration board are working actively for the people to comply with their deportation orders on their own.
" We are holding talks with the applicant, it is the opportunity that we have. Where we provide information about what actions are, what help you can get and shows a clarity in that you should leave the country when they have their stipulated decisions. It can always be developing, " says Bengtsson.
He believes that the number of people that disappear after a deportation order or in the process of the residence permit will be at approximately the same levels in the future.
" We think well about that we will be around 55 per cent of its own accord, return after their decision.
