A UK minister is in Rwanda to support the repatriation of migrants


British Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes has visited Rwanda to reinforce the UK’s plans to strengthen deportation plans for failed asylum seekers and other migrants. Ms Nokes met with the Rwandan Minister of Internal Security, Richard Tusabe, and other government officials to discuss the UK’s program to make it easier to remove people with no right to remain in the UK.

Ms Nokes said that the UK is committed to working with the Rwandan government to ensure that deportees are welcomed and supported upon their return. She also said that the UK is providing funding to help with reintegration of the returnees and to help with their reintegration into society.

The UK is one of the world’s major refugee hosting countries and is seeking to improve its deportation procedures. It is also working to strengthen its partnerships with countries that are willing to accept returned asylum seekers.
