You were refused entry at the border and were claimed by another country pursuant to the Dublin Regulation
You are receiving this fact sheet because you were refused entry at the border. It has become evident from your asylum application with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) that you set foot in another European country first. This means that another European country is responsible for processing your asylum application. You were not granted entry into the Netherlands until it can be clarified which European country will be processing your asylum application. Until then you will stay at a detention facility for foreign nationals, pursuant to Article 6 of the Aliens Act.
