Norway continues to make Norway a less attractive place to move to for asylum seekers, by suggesting tougher requirements for family reunification.
The Norwegian Government now proposes stricter requirements for family reunification, something that Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug believes is absolutely necessary, the governing Progress party writes on its website.
Families who have a stronger connection to other safe countries should settle there instead of moving the whole family to Norway.
Therefore Listhaug has suggested a proposal that involves the introduction of affiliation requirements for family reunification. This means that if it is natural that the family settles in another country, they will not get the application for family reunification approved.
- In such cases there is no reason why the family should be granted residence in Norway. This is an important measure to ensure a more sustainable asylum policy, says the Minister.
She notes that the proposal is an important part of a tightening package by the government, and a matter the Progress party has long fought for.
- I am pleased that we succeeded in this mitigation in Parliament. There are several other measures we would like to get through, but the Labor party and the Centre party refuse. I'm going to do my best to continue the firm and strict line in the immigration policy, concludes Sylvi Listhaug, Norway's Trump.
