The process for Third Country Resettlement of the refugees from Bhutan in Nepal Begins
PDF File Size: 36 KB | Download   
The much-awaited process for large scale third country resettlement of refugees from Bhutan in camps in eastern Nepal begins with the mass information campaign in all the camps to assist refugees to make an informed decision by providing them with accurate
information. This follows the decision of the Government of Nepal to allow those refugees who wish to opt for third country resettlement as an alternative solution to do so on the basis of an informed choice and acceptance by the resettlement country. Resettlement is the relocation of a refugee and their family from Nepal to a third
country. This is done with the support and agreement of the resettlement countries as part of a burden sharing mechanism towards achieving a humanitarian solution so that refugees do not have to continue suffering in the camps. On arrival in the resettlement country they will have legal permanent residence including the possibility for being citizens of that country in due course if they so desire.The UN refugee agency together with the international community will continue its efforts to ensure that as many doors as possible are opened in terms of achieving lasting solutions to the plight of the refugees, including voluntary repatriation as and when return conditions permit.
