The Dublin III Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 604/2013) establishes a system for determining and identifying the Member State in Europe responsible for the examination of an individual’s asylum application. It sets out a hierarchy of criteria for determining the responsible Member State including factors such as:

  • the presence of family members in particular States
  • the issuing of visas and residence documents
  • and the travel route of a person into Europe
