Asylum applications from foreign refugees on the Turks and Caicos IslandsThe total number of initial and continuing applications refers to the year 2020. Please note that the number of decisions (acceptances or rejections) does not have to add up with the number of applications because there may still have been open cases from previous years. Also, they don't have to be closed within the same calendar year. In addition, asylum procedures can also be closed, if the applicant disappeared or withdrew the application.
