The State Secretariat for Migration SEM has reviewed the provisional admission of around 250 people from Eritrea as part of a pilot project. The reason for this review is a judgment of the Federal Administrative Court of 17 August 2017, in which it stated that it considered the return for rejected asylum seekers from Eritrea in their home country as in principle considered reasonable.
The SEM will review a total of 2800 preliminary photographs of rejected asylum seekers from Eritrea by mid-2019. First priority includes families, unaccompanied minors and young people in education.
