The last four weeks, 194 asylum seekers have come to Norway, according to figures from UDI.

A majority of them will probably not have their asylum applications accepted.
Not since the early 90s, have there been fewer asylum seekers than it does today. A total of 1,400 asylum seekers hav come to Norway so far this year.
Only 22 of the 194 who have come the last four weeks, claim to be from Syria. The two countries with the largest number of asylum seekers are Afghanistan with 24 asylum seekers and Iraq with 23 applicants.
Another large group are Albanians with 14 people in the past four weeks. This group does not normally get their asylum applications granted in Norway. Neither this year or last year,  has any Albanians had their  their application for asylum granted.
The percentage of people who have had their asylym applications granted the first four months of this year is 42.
Both the other two Scandinavian countries have got more asylum seekers coming this year. Sweden, has  received about 2,000 asylum seekers in the past four weeks, while Denmark have received about 304 asylum applications in the same period.
