The list of safe countries of origin, based on which the accelerated procedure may be applied, was expanded in 2019 to cover three new countries, namely Namibia, Uruguay and South Korea. On the contrary, Sri Lanka was deleted from the list. The so-called “fast-track procedure” (see Fast-Track Processing), was applied in 493 cases from 1 January to 30 September 2019.[1]
