Background information:

  • “The land route through Turkey to Greece is currently the route most frequently used by migrants and refugees travelling to the European Union from all over the world. This makes Turkey the main transit country for illegal immigration into the European Union. In order to make it possible for migrants who had entered the European Union illegally to be returned, the European Union and Turkey agreed to open negotiations on a readmission agreement in November 2002. Under this agreement, the parties would be obliged to readmit their own nationals, as well as third-country nationals without residence documents and stateless persons; the agreement also lays down procedural and technical criteria for readmission”.
