    Highest number of asylum decisions to date

    In 2016, 111,979 people learned the outcome of their application for asylum. This is the highest number of asylum decisions ever made by the Swedish Migration Agency in one year. This concerted effort was necessitated by the high number of asylum seekers – some 163,000 – arriving in 2015. In 2016, a total of 28,939 people applied for asylum in Sweden.
