How many people seeking asylum by plane have been found to be refugees?

Many people have come to Australia as refugees by plane. These tables set out the numbers who have been recognised as refugees by ‘final grant rate’ (the numbers recognised following an initial and review decision), as well as ‘primary grant rate’ (recognised by the Department of Immigration, now Home Affairs).

These statistics are no longer regularly published by the government and are therefore no longer updated.

Join the movement!

We need you to show our government that Australia cares about refugees. Help us by joining the movement so we can protect refugees, not punish them.
