Asylum

Here you find current statistics and statistics from previous years about asylum. The statistics are updated every month.

From 1 January 2022 the statistics are retrieved from a new data source (called Simba). As before, the central aliens database (CUD) is the basis for the Swedish Migration Agency's data and it contains information about all cases. The new statistics are presented so that they meet the requirements of the Act on Accessibility to Digital Public Services. The statistics are now only available in Swedish and in Excel format.

Monthly statistics August 2022

The monthly statistics show first-time applications, decisions and granted in first instance (the Swedish Migration Agency). People who have fled from Ukraine and have applied for Protection under the Temporary Protection Directive are not included here.
