There are hardly any judicial resolutions in the National High Court that review refusals by the Ministry of the Interior to grant asylum to immigrants from Sudan. The reason is that practically all those from that country who claim refugee status obtain it, or at least obtain subsidiary protection that also allows them to remain in Spain.

According to the data offered by NGOs, the majority of those who tried to cross the Melilla fence a few days ago, and those who died, were of Sudanese origin, which made the granting of some type of protection almost certain. It is estimated that 133 people managed to gain access to the autonomous city, again mostly Sudanese, and will have the right to apply for asylum.

This is stated in the data offered by the Ministry of the Interior and the Spanish Commission for Refugee Aid. The most updated are the first. Until the end of May, the ministry has resolved 160 requests from Sudanese: 143 have been favorable. Specifically, 102 have obtained the requested asylum and 41 subsidiary protection, which yields 90% of favorable resolutions. There have only been 17 negative reports from the Interior.

The data is also derived from the CEAR reports. In the 2021 report, with data from the previous year, it is indicated that Sudan, a country in continuous conflict, is the second country in the world with the highest rate of recognition of refugee status in Spain (93%, only after 100% of the few requests coming from Jamaica).

In any case, the absolute numbers of Sudanese requesting protection are very low compared to those of the countries that lead the ranking, with thousands of requests from Venezuelans or Colombians. Being few Sudanese, a notable increase in the last year is reflected. In 2020 there were only 20 applications, according to Interior data, a figure eight times lower than that of the first five months of 2022.
