Humanitarian admission scheme

The European Commission recommended the establishment of a scheme for humanitarian admission from Turkey. The new scheme is conceived to “ensure an orderly, managed, safe and dignified arrival of such persons in place of dangerous and irregular migration”. The scheme is also -and perhaps primarily- directed towards preventing secondary movements.

12. With the objective of preventing secondary movements, candidates for humanitarian admission should be informed of their rights and obligations, under the humanitarian admission scheme as well as under relevant Union and national asylum legislation, and be provided pre-departure cultural-orientation support, prior to their admission to the territory of the participating State, in particular of the consequences of onward movement within participating States and of the fact that they are only entitled to the rights attached to protection in the State of admission.

13. Admitted persons who enter the territory of a participating State other than the State of admission without authorisation, either pending the completion of the formal international protection procedure or after granting of international protection, should be sent back to the State of admission, pursuant to the rules laid down in Regulation (EU) No 604/2013 of the Europeans Parliament and of the Council and Directive 2008/115/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
