ATTENTION! All UNHCR services, including resettlement, are FREE of charge!
Resettlement is the selection and transfer of refugees from their country of asylum to a third country that has agreed to admit them, as refugees, with permanent resident status.
Resettlement is a limited solution available to refugees who meet specific requirements. The criteria are defined by the resettlement country based on specific protection needs and particular vulnerabilities. UNHCR monitors individual cases of refugees continuously and determines those eligible for Resettlement consideration.
Resettlement is not a right and is not available to everyone granted refugee status. Places are limited, and resettlement countries choose how many refugees to resettle.
