About Half 2.5 million Refugees Still Waiting for Approval for Asylum

According to Eurostat, at the end of 2016 there were almost 1.2 million migrants waiting for a decision on their asylum applications. Already, about 880,000 people were granted asylum with only 66,000 being returned to their home country. Then there were 110,000 people whose whereabouts are just unknown. This means that by the end of 2016, some 52% of 2.5 million refugees were still waiting for their asylum to be granted.  The bulk or 53% of all asylum seekers come from only 3 countries – Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, according to what they claimed. About 50% of all asylum applications were filed in Germany.
