Refugee resettlement facts.

Resettlement is the careful selection by governments of vulnerable refugees who can't return to their home country. The vetting and screening process can take up to two years.

We refer only the most vulnerable cases to host countries for resettlement - people who can neither return to their home countries nor live in safety in neighbouring countries.

...

Vulnerable categories of refugees include:
- Women and girls at risk
- Children at risk
- Separated families trying to reunite
- Survivors of torture
- People with medical needs.
