Complementary pathways are safe and regulated avenues that complement Resettlement and by which refugees may be admitted to a country and have their international protection needs met while they support themselves to potentially reach a sustainable and lasting solution.
Complementary Pathways are distinct and additional to resettlement. Third countries establish competitive criteria and decide who is admitted to their territories. Refugees and asylum seekers can apply directly for pathway opportunities, and a UNHCR referral is not always required.
Pathway opportunities may include the below:
- Family Reunification
- Labour Mobility Pathways
- Education Pathways
- Private Sponsorship Pathways
