The Dublin Regulation is an agreement between the EU countries, Iceland, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Norway, establishing a procedure for determining which single country is responsible for examining your application for asylum.  

Since your case falls under the Dublin agreement, your application for asylum will not be examined in Iceland and you will be returned to the European country responsible for processing your application.  

After receiving a return decision, you will be moved to another housing at Bæjarhraun 16, where you will stay prior to departure. Most families will not be moved to Bæjarhraun 16 and will remain in their previous housing. Please be advised to follow the rules regarding mandatory check-ins. Failure to comply may result in loss of housing, financial support and other benefits and you may be listed as a wanted person by the police.  

When returned a police officer from the National Commissioners Office in Iceland will meet up with you and take you to the airport. At the airport you will be escorted to the plane or all the way to the country responsible for your application for asylum. Upon arrival you will meet up with local authorities.    

This process can be distressing and overwhelming. We want to offer our support and guidance during this challenging time. You can contact a return specialist at for further information.
