Dutch Asylum Procedure – Reasons for Rejection

In the Netherlands, an application for asylum may be refused for several reasons:

  • The person in question was previously in another European member state where you could have applied for asylum before you came to the Netherlands, or if you have already requested asylum in a European member state other than the Netherlands.
  • The person in question has previously applied for asylum in the Netherlands and no new relevant facts have since come to light.
  • The person in question constitutes a risk to public order and national security.
  • The person in question has provided incorrect information.
