It is not currently possible to undertake resettlement activity due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are evaluating how to respond given these restrictions and pressures, but we expect to resume refugee resettlement activity when safe and operationally viable to do so.

We continue to closely monitor the situation and remain in regular dialogue with our international and domestic stakeholders.
