Denmark follows the UK’s footsteps: opens office in Rwanda for immigrants

After England, Denmark is also preparing to send immigrants to Rwanda during the process of evaluating their applications.

The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that the two diplomats will be sent to the new office to be opened in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

The ministry stressed that the aim of the office is to strengthen relations between the two countries.

“Denmark and Rwanda share the same view on helping more refugees better than today and tackling dangerous and irregular migration, including crossings across the Mediterranean,” Migration Minister Kaare Dybvad Bek said.

The Minister stated that they aim to reform the current corrupt asylum system and offer refugees and migrants a more dignified and sustainable future, which is why they opened their Rwanda office.

Moving part of Denmark’s asylum system to a non-EU country like Rwanda, with a plan adopted in 2021, is one of the long-term goals of the ruling social democratic government. But parties that support the minority government from outside have announced that they are against the plan.

Within the scope of the plan, it is envisaged that the Danish asylum applicants will be sent to Rwanda instead of being kept in the country during the process of examining their files.

Negotiations continue between the two countries regarding the details of the plan.

The United Nations refugee agency, on the other hand, declared that outsourcing an issue such as asylum in Rwanda or any other country is not a responsible or sustainable solution.
