Description topics

First asylum requests (persons)
First asylum requests are requests by persons from another country seeking permission to be admitted as refugees. These requests are submitted by persons who have left their own country for various reasons in order to seek protection or asylum in another country. 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)
Following relatives are family members of an asylum seeker with an asylum permit. The family members actually entered the Netherlands and immediately received an asylum permit upon arrival.

In order to bring family members to the Netherlands, the permit holder must apply for a temporary stay (mvv). This application must be made within 3 months after the asylum permit has been granted. After granting, the mvv is valid for 90 days. The family members can collect the mvv’s at the consular services of embassies and use them to enter the Netherlands. The number of asylum permits for family reunification in the table is therefore not equal to the number of mvv’s issued to these following relatives.
