New Family Reunification Scheme

Minister Flanagan and Minister of State Stanton announce new family reunification scheme in support of refugees and their families under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme.

Briefly the points are:

  • 530 family reunification places over next two years
  • Minister will use discretionary powers, this means that an act in the Dail (parliament) is not necessary
  • Ireland to host largest ever number of refugees in 2018 – 2019 as part of overall commitments
