The Danish parliament has backed a controversial proposal to confiscate asylum seekers' valuables to pay for their upkeep.
Denmark says the policy brings migrants in line with jobless Danes, who must sell assets above a certain level to claim benefits.
MPs also approved plans to delay family reunions for asylum seekers.
The bill was expected to go through even though it had been criticised by human rights groups.
Under the new law, refugees entering the country will only be allowed to keep possessions up to a value of about 10,000 kroner (1,340 euros; £1,000) - a figure raised from 3,000 kroner following objections.
Items of sentimental value, such as wedding rings, will be exempt.
Danish critics have likened the move to the confiscation of valuables from Jews during World War Two.
