International Organization for Migration

Migration for the benefit of all

Target groups

The Norwegian government decides annually the target groups and numbers of quota refugees that have to be selected for resettlement in Norway. During the last two years (2015-16) the target group has been Syrians living in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, but majority have been taken from Lebanon. In 2017 the regular quota refugees will all be Syrians and will be selected from Lebanon and Turkey.

Other refugee groups that have been selected and given pre-departure cultural orientation have come from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Eritrea, Iraq, Iran, Liberia, Myanmar, and Palestine.
