Assisted voluntary return and reintegration

In order to achieve a more just and more secure society, it is important that migrants who are not allowed to stay in the Netherlands actually leave the country. According to Dutch law, the responsibility for leaving the country lies with the migrant. However, as the implementing agency of the Dutch Government’s return policy, the Repatriation and Departure Service (DT&V) of the Ministry of Justice and Security facilitates and supervises the departure of migrants who are not allowed to stay.
