Asylum applications per capita in Iceland, Bulgaria higher than Australia

While Australia has received thousands of applications for asylum this year, the applications are not high compared to Australia’s population.

Australia had 4589 applications for asylum between January and June this year.

That may sound significant, however, the applications Australia received were not relatively high compared to the population.

Belgium, with roughly half Australia’s population, had more applications for asylum than Australia.

The figures were revealed in data compiled by the World Bank and UNHCR for the year 2013.
