Overview of statistical practice
Statistical information on asylum applicants and main countries of origin, as well as overall numbers and outcome of first instance decisions, was made available on a monthly basis by the former Immigration and Asylum Office (former IAO), although this practice stopped in April 2018. Since then, statistics have been published annually in Hungarian by the National Directorate-General for Aliens Policing (NDGAP). The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) also published brief statistical overviews on a monthly basis, although their regularity has also become more limited.
