Relatively few transfers of asylum seekers within EuropeTuesday, 12 June 2018 15:54
Such transfers were done in 1.054 cases: 3,882 positive decisions were received, but only one-third of these gave rise to transfers. The persons concerned are detained in a closed centre before being sent back.
Because of a lack of space, all asylum seekers cannot be placed in a closed centre and they thus receive an order to register at a foreign address for a certain date. The result is that asylum seekers often go underground.
Some 661 asylum seekers were sent back to Belgium out of a total of 4,118 requests sent from other countries, fewer than 2 out of 10.
