In March 2018 the total asylum influx (first asylum applications, repeated requests for asylum and family members of asylum status holders) was 2,292.
In comparison, a year earlier (March 2017) it totalled 3.296; the difference can be traced back to a sharp decrease in the number of family members of asylum status holders who came to the Netherlands.
The total asylum influx in March increased slightly compared to the previous month. This increase is mainly due to an increase in the number of first applications (February: 1,188, March: 1,365).
Unaccompanied minor foreign nationals (AMV)
The number of applications submitted by unaccompanied minor foreign nationals (AMV) in March (158) shows almost a doubling compared to the previous month (February: 80. AMV of Eritrean nationality provide a substantial share of this increase (February: 40, March: 89).
