Costa Rica - Strengthening of the Government of Costa Rica’s Asylum System through Digitalization - September 2022

Document Type: Panel de indicadores y hojas informativas
Document Language: English
Costa Rica’s asylum system uses systems for case management, within and outside the database designed by the General Directorate for Migration and Foreigners (DGME), which was designed for the management of migrant issues, not those of refugee populations. The significant increase of new asylum claims in the recent years, the lack of a dedicated database or tools specific to handle the refugee status determination process has hindered the efficiency of the current system, primarily tools for pre-registration, case management, identification of certain profiles, and other requirements. The project to develop the asylum database and related tools will enhance the quality of the national system.
