Asylum: Rwanda

Question for Home Office

UIN 18801, tabled on 15 June 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what per-person payment has been agreed for the transfer of asylum seekers from the UK to Rwanda for the individuals in addition to the £120 million initial investment under the Migration and Economic Development Partnership with that country.

The UK has provided Rwanda with an initial investment of £120m as part of the Migration and Economic Development Partnership.

Every person’s needs are different, but we anticipate the amount would be comparable to processing costs incurred in the UK. Funding is only provided while a person remains in Rwanda.
