Description topics

First asylum requests (persons)
A first asylum request is submitted by only one person. The number of first asylum requests refers to the actual number of persons who submitted an asylum request over a specific period of time. As of 2016, the number of first asylum requests includes those applicants who have been relocated.
Nationalities will be listed separately in the datasets once the number of asylum requests from people holding this nationality has exceeded 50 within a period of twelve months. As a result, the sum of the detailed data may deviate from the total number.

Family reunification (persons)
Family members of the permit holder (asylum seeker) who have been granted an authorization for temporary stay (MVV), also called an entry visa. They are allowed to come to the Netherlands with this visa. It is valid for 90 days. The family members immediately receive an asylum permit upon arrival in the Netherlands. As a result, the number of family members with an entry visa in the table does not have to be equal to the number of permits granted to these family members. The permit holder (asylum seeker) must submit the request for an MVV within 3 months of receiving the asylum permit.
