Despite increased resources and efforts, by August 2014, there are still 4350 people in asylum centers who have received a final rejection of the application for asylum.
The reason is that the police are in doubt about their identity, or that their country of origin will not accept them back if they are deported by force. Several have also disappeared without a trace when the police came to pick them up.
Now the government will spend 200 million NOK more next year so that more foreigners can be deported.
Most will be asylum seekers who have received a final rejection of the application for asylum, or foreigners who are convicted of crimes.
- The Government's aim is that people without legal residence, and criminal foreigners, are to be returned faster, Justice Minister Anders Anundsen, says.
In 2015, the police will be returning 7800 foreigners by force. In addition, 2300 will be returned in the form of "assisted returns".
A large group to be deported are immigrants apprehended in the streets of Oslo selling drugs. Most of them have applied for asylum or been rejected already.
In addition, the police will start investigations of persons who may have been granted residence in Norway by error.
At the same time 32 new full-time positions are being created to enhance the operational work in the immigration police department in Oslo.
