How does the DT&V deal with a foreign national who must leave the Netherlands, but has a medical problem?

We can arrange extra assistance (in the form of an escort) for these foreign nationals. Naturally we will check to see if this is really necessary. The Medical Assessment Section of the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) is responsible for this. Their advice may list conditions like:

  • specific transport to the airport in the Netherlands,
  • a (psychiatric) nurse escort,
  • extra medication,
  • a medical transfer, in which case the foreign national is transferred to a doctor in the country of destination.
