We recently signed a migration agreement with Nigeria which will see both countries work together to tackle shared migration issues, including doing more together to support legal migration, tackle illegal migration and speed up the deportation of foreign criminals.

This agreement is different from our Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda which allows for asylum seekers, not refugees, whose claims are inadmissible to be relocated to Rwanda.
