Asylum Seekers/Refugees on Nauru - Statistics updated in January and February 2016

The number of children in detention in Nauru has been decreasing but this is largely because the children have been released from the detention facility, not necessarily because they have left Nauru altogether.

According to the latest statistics from the Department of Immigration, there are 484 people (including 54 children) detained in Nauru ( 

A further 839 people are living in the Nauruan community after having been found to be refugees and released from detention ( 

This includes a number of children. 

Some children may also have left Nauru if their parents elected to voluntarily return to their countries of origin. 

I am not aware of any children having been resettled in third countries from Nauru. 

The Department of Immigration may be able to confirm this for you.

I hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,
