Of 7,858 claimed child migrants, dental and medical exams found “6,628 were 18 or older (84%), and 112 “possibly” 18 or older”. This is in line with findings in other European countries (Germany, Finland, UK, etc).


A Swedish investigation into migrants claiming asylum as children suggests that three-quarters of those tested were over the age of 18.

Sweden’s national forensic medicine agency checked the age of nearly 8,000 people and found that some 6,600 were 18 or over.

The checks were only carried out in cases where there were doubts as to the person’s age.

Child migrants are less likely to be sent back to their country of origin.
