Australia is asking other countries to consider taking people in immigration detention centres on Nauru and in Papua New Guinea even if they are found not to be refugees.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton says there is a problem with what should happen with non-refugees who refused to return to their home countries, especially in the case of Iran which won't take forced returnees.

"This is part of the third-country discussion that we have with a number of countries at the moment, would you include some of those people that have been found not to be refugees," he told Sky News on Monday.
