No. In 2019, most refugees and people seeking asylum (73%) resided in their neighbouring countries if it was safe for them to do so. Most of these were developing countries, with 85% of refugees overall being hosted by low to middle income countries.
For example, in 2019, Bangladesh continued to host 854,782 people in a refugee-like situation from Myanmar and in 2018 Turkey granted temporary protection to 397,600 refugees from Syria.
In the financial year of 2019-20, Australia granted refugee status to 14,993 people, either through resettlement from other countries or granting protection to people who had applied for asylum in Australia.
Over the past 10 years, of all resettled refugees 55% went to the United States of America (575,600), 20% to Canada (210,600) and 11% to Australia (114,500). The gap between needs and actual resettlement is growing, with some States significantly reducing the number of resettlement places on offer.
