This week, more asylum seekers that the government decided to take in from Greece last year will come to Norway.

These are two families with children, the Directorate of Immigration (UDI) told the newspaper Vårt Land.

“Two of the last three families will come during this week,” press adviser Vibeke Schjem at the UDI told the newspaper.

Last year, the Norwegian government decided to take in 50 refugees and migrants from Greece after the fire in the Moria camp.

Schjem says that the number has increased by one person due to a birth before the transfer to Norway. Thus, a total of 51 asylum seekers arrive.

After the two families arrive, there will only be one family with five family members left due to medical reasons, according to the UDI.
