650 000 first-time asylum seekers registered in 2017

In 2017, 650 000 first time asylum seekers applied for international protection in the Member States of the European Union (EU). This was just over half the number recorded in 2016, when 1 206 500 first-time asylum applicants were registered, and is comparable to the level recorded in 2014, before the peaks of 2015 and 2016.
