What is Rwanda asylum plan?

 he Rwanda plan, also known as the Rwanda asylum plan, is a policy proposed by the British government in April 2022. It would see some asylum seekers who arrive in the UK illegally sent to Rwanda to have their asylum claims processed. If their claims are successful, they will be granted refugee status in Rwanda. If not, they will be deported to their home country or another country where they can be granted asylum.

The government says the plan is necessary to deter people from making dangerous journeys to the UK in the hope of claiming asylum. It also says that Rwanda is a safe country with a good track record of welcoming refugees.

However, the plan has been met with widespread criticism from human rights groups, who argue that it is inhumane and violates international law. They also say that Rwanda is not a safe country for refugees, and that there is a risk that they will be mistreated or even tortured there.

The plan has also been challenged in the courts. In June 2022, a High Court judge ruled that the plan could go ahead, but only on an interim basis. The judge said that the full legality of the plan would need to be decided at a later date.

The Rwanda plan is due to start in the coming weeks. It is unclear how many people will be affected by the plan, but the government has said that it could see up to 10,000 asylum seekers being sent to Rwanda each year.

Here are some of the key details of the Rwanda plan:

  • The plan is a five-year agreement between the British and Rwandan governments.
  • Under the plan, the UK government will pay Rwanda £120 million per year to process asylum claims.
  • Asylum seekers who are sent to Rwanda will be housed in a purpose-built reception centre.
  • If their asylum claims are successful, they will be granted refugee status in Rwanda.
  • If their claims are unsuccessful, they will be deported to their home country or another country where they can be granted asylum.
  • The plan has been met with widespread criticism from human rights groups.
  • The plan has also been challenged in the courts.
  • The plan is due to start in the coming weeks.
