Norwegian Immigration and Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug said in a statement that from next year food stamps will be given to asylum seekers in Norway instead of spending money.

She says it sends a clear signal that Norway will be less attractive.

The Government also proposes the introduction of a maximum limit on how much a family can receive in support while they stay at the reception center.

Wants to make Norway unattractive

Food stamps will be given in the form of a debit card, which has no possibility of cash withdrawals.

- We see that many, especially young people, feel pressured to send money back to their families. Some therefore live at a minimum and are malnourished. This is an important signal from us that we do not want people to come here to live in hunger and send money back home, while it may be a signal externally that allows Norway to seem less attractive, says Sylvi Listhaug, to Dagbladet.

Some organizations have said that up to 90 percent of all who come to Europe come via smugglers. The migrants pay large sums to smugglers and put themselves in debt.

- Some will therefore also have to spend money intended to go to food and necessities to pay smugglers, which is not something that Norway wants to contribute to, says Listhaug.

The Government also intends to speed up processing of asylum cases so that the time at the reception center becomes shorter.
