Stricter asylum legislation
The Government will investigate how to amend Sweden’s legislation for asylum-related immigration so that Sweden will not have a more generous asylum policy than is required according to EU and international law.
Those in need of protection will be granted temporary protection. Permanent residence permits should be phased out. Possibilities to grant residence permits on special grounds or based on exceptionally distressing circumstances (humanitarian grounds) will be limited.
Focus areas in Sweden's new migration policy
