NZ’s refugee quota programme


The refugee quota programme was disrupted by Covid border closures in March 2020 and resumed in February.

There were 191 new arrivals as at the end of May. An estimated 750 to 1000 individual­s will be resettled in 2021-2022, fewer than the original target of 1500 due to ongoing border and internatio­nal travel restrictio­ns.
