Author/s: Christian Mommers, Hans Eijkhout, Pierre Celestin Iyamuremye, Joshua Maiyo
This report deals with the issue of voluntary return of HIV-positive Africans in the Netherlands, who have been rejected for asylum or are staying in the country as irregular migrants. Dutch immigration policy stipulates that any migrant without a legal status is under the obligation to leave the Netherlands, with voluntary return being the preferred way of meeting this obligation.
