In the course of 2018, UNHCR submitted nearly 5,600 refugees from around the world for resettlement to Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea, and Japan, while over 4,750 refugees were resettled in these four countries during the year.
 
In 2018, China established multiple new entities that dovetailed with UNHCR’s efforts to deepen its engagement with the Government. In mainland China, UNHCR worked with the new National Immigration Administration Bureau to explore China’s interest in developing refugee legislation and its aim to incrementally take over UNHCR’s responsibilities in assessing asylum claims. China pledged to support seven additional positions in the Junior Professional Officer scheme while a global agreement on paid internship was finalised with Macao Special Administrative Region of China. In Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China, UNHCR strengthened its dialogue with the authorities as they reviewed the implementation of the Unified Screening Mechanism to determine the status of asylum claimants in Hong Kong (SAR).
2018 information for this subregion will be available shortly.
