Withdrawing temporary and permanent non-asylum residence permits (2015)
A temporary or permanent non-asylum residence permit may be withdrawn from a third-country national in all the responding countries on the basis of issues of public order that have been identified in another EU/EFTA member country, except in the case of Estonia. In most of the responding countries the caveats are related to whether the public order issues in the other member country would also be an issue in the member country in question, the nature of the issue, whether there is a risk that a similar issue would arise in this country, as well as the length of residence in and the strength of other links to the country.
The Netherlands is sometimes confronted with criminal third country nationals who hold a residence permit of another EU country. In order to examine the possibilities of co-operation with other EU Member states in dealing with these individuals, we would like to find out about the possibilities in your country to withdraw a residence permit because of issues of public order. Therefore we would like to ask you the following questions.
- What are the criteria in your country for withdrawing temporary non-asylum residence permits because of issues of public order?
- What are the criteria in your country for withdrawing permanent non-asylum residence permits because of issues of public order?
- Does your country withdraw non-asylum residence permits based on issues of public order in other member states?
