A total of 557 asylum seekers have arrived in Luxembourg in the relocation mechanism framework
After 67 asylum seekers arrived in Luxembourg this past month, the Luxembourg government announced that it had fulfilled all its obligations in the framework of the relocation mechanism of asylum seekers from Greece and Italy.
The relocation mechanism was established in September 2015 to alleviate the burden of the administrations in Greece and Italy, where the bulk of refugees arrived. Luxembourg had agreed to take in 557 people from these two countries.
On 30 November and on 20 December 2017, 38 people arrived from Italy, while 29 were relocated from Greece.
Olai, the integration office, will take care of their settling in and guide them in daily life and help with the asylum applications.
