UK ranks countries based on willingness to take back migrants | Abroad

It is said that British Home Secretary Priti Patel will rank countries based on their willingness to take in criminals and rejected asylum seekers from Britain. British media reported this.

According to The Times, the Home Secretary could suspend visa applications from those countries, charge a fee of £190 on their applications, and extend visa processing time. This is possible under the Nationality and Boundaries Act (NABA), a new law that went into effect last week.

The list includes countries such as Albania, Nigeria and Poland, which are more willing to take back criminals and rejected asylum seekers. Britain hopes the arrangement will encourage other countries to follow suit.
