What does the DT&V do to ensure that foreign nationals who leave the Netherlands are able to travel to their country of origin?
We have contact with the diplomatic representatives of the countries of origin. The embassies are in the Netherlands and in Belgium. We have contact with the embassies for the following reasons:
- to determine the nationality and/or identity of the foreign nationals,
- to obtain a (replacement) travel document/border-crossing document if required,
- to be able to utilise agreements for referrals or return requests for departing foreign nationals.
