Minister for Immigration, Integration and Asylum Policy Gerd Leers informed the House of Representatives in a letter that the Netherlands will not force anyone to return to Eritrea. Asylum seekers from Eritrea who left without permission of the Eritrean authorities will be able to obtain an asylum residence permit. He based this decision on the most recent information about Eritrea from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
