In order to be eligible for resettlement and to have your case submitted for resettlment to a third country, you must meet certain requirements related to your status in the country of refuge. These requirements are based on global standards agreed upon by resettlement countries and according to which each refugee is assessed.
Resettlement places are limited, and are determined by third countries that are willing to accept refugees who have protection or immediate needs that cannot be addressed in Lebanon. Therefore, UNHCR must identify those who are most vulnerable and present a number of cases that match the offers from the thrid countries. This number is very small compared to the overall refugee population in Lebanon of more than 1.1 million refugees, which include both Syrian refugees and refugees from other countries. 3,326 refugees were resettled in 2013, and 6,285 were resettled from all origin in 2014.
Resettlement is one of the durable solutions. The preferred option remains the return to your country of origin when the conditions will allow for a safe return in dignity, which will allow you to resume a normal life with access to public services and protection from the your country. UNHCR is under no obligation to submit your case for resettlement.
