Why are asylum seekers being sent to Rwanda and how many could go?

The UK government says that the plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda will discourage people from crossing the English Channel.

However, a report by MPs has found no evidence that asylum seekers are being deterred by the policy, pointing to estimates that double the number of migrants will arrive in small boats in 2022, compared to the previous year.

What is the Rwanda asylum plan?

The five-year trial will send some refugees to Rwanda to claim asylum there.

They may be granted permanent refugee status to stay in Rwanda. If not, they can apply to settle there on other grounds, or seek asylum in a “safe third country”.
