From the perspective of human rights, this chapter attempts to look into the legality of restrictions enforced on the entry and residence of refugees who are trying to attain protection from places outside their country of origin. Using this approach allows us to understand how these refugees acquire a certain legal status that is determined by the host States in which they enter and move in to under international treaties and other measures that attempt to protect refugees and that there is a need for these ‘refugee specific’ standards to be synchronized with those of human rights that involve restrictions and residence of these said refugees in prisons, settlements, camps, and other such facilities.
