On arrival into the UK under the EU Dublin Regulation, the expedited family process operated during the clearance of the Calais camp and section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016, all unaccompanied children transferred from Europe claim asylum and their claim is considered in line with our asylum processes.

The requested data is not held in a straightforward way on our systems. We are working to see if the data can be extracted from Home Office systems and assured to the right quality for publication.

In keeping with our commitments in the legislation under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016, and in line with those granted Refugee or humanitarian protection leave, individuals relocated under section 67 who do not qualify for international protection and who meet the requirements will be granted section 67 of the Immigration Act leave. This means that they will have the right to study, work, access public funds and healthcare and apply for indefinite leave to remain without paying a fee after five years.
