Interesting asylum stats

Some interesting stats found under the OIA about asylum claims.

The most frequent claims come from China, India, Sri Lanka and Iran which seems logical as they all have situations where people do fear persecution and death.

But I was surprised there were claims from citizens of countries where it is most unlikely. This includes:

  • Czech 17
  • Hungary 18
  • Samoa 6
  • Slovakia 5
  • Tonga 6
  • US 5

Overall around 1/4 to 1/3 of claims are successful.
