Early warning and Preparedness System (EPS) Latest Asylum Trends

EASO monthly snapshots (Latest Asylum Trends) should be understood as giving an estimation of overall asylum trends at EU+ level in as close to real time as possible.

They provide information on the number of applications for international protection made; countries of origin of the applicants; and asylum first instance decisions.

Monthly statistical snapshots are produced by EASO’s Information and Analysis Unit (IAU) on the basis of monthly data exchanged under the Early Warning and Preparedness System (EPS). The data shared with EASO by the EU+ countries are provisional and unvalidated, and therefore may differ from validated data submitted to Eurostat (according to Regulation (EC) No 862/2007). In line with the dissemination guide on EPS data, EASO cannot publish data disaggregated per EU+ country.
