2009 was a key year in terms of resolving one of Asia’s most protracted refugee situations. Just one year after the start of large-scale resettlement for refugees from Bhutan, more than 25,500 refugees departed for third countries to start new lives. In 2009 alone, some 17,400 refugees left Nepal for resettlement This reduced the camp population from 102,000 individuals to just under 86,000 individuals.
Nepal had the largest number of resettlement submissions, the largest number of departures and the highest acceptance rate of any resettlement operation globally in 2009. A further 20,000 refugees officially declared their interest in resettlement during the year, with over 21,000 refugees referred to resettlement countries for consideration. As an indicator of the success of the resettlement programme to date, the acceptance rate by resettlement countries stands at approximately 99 per cent.
UNHCR undertook a number of anti-fraud initiatives in 2009 related to both registration and resettlement, including anti-fraud training for UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and implementing partner staff, the implementation of an electronic file-tracking system, a desk review of census absentees, the creation of a fraud investigation task force and the dissemination of anti-fraud materials to refugees.
The Government considered visa fee waivers for a small number of urban resettlement cases with pressing protection and humanitarian needs.
UNHCR worked closely with members of Nepal’s Constituent Assembly and other key stakeholders to address citizenship provisions in the draft constitution which could give rise to statelessness.
