Swedish Authorities Backtrack on Decision to Deport Migrants with Hungary-Processed Fingerprints

The Swedish Migration Office issued a decision ruling that asylum applications by migrants whose fingerprints were taken in Hungary be considered. Sometime earlier, authorities rebuffed such applications submitted by migrants with fingerprints taken in Hungary and Italy.

The EU registers fingerprints of asylum seekers in a system called the EuroDac. The system, which was established in 2003, helps determine which EU member state is responsible for processing the application of an asylum seeker.

According to the Dublin Regulation, the first country that an asylum seeker entered is ultimately responsible for an inpidual's asylum application. When an asylum seeker enters this first country, their fingerprints are taken and even though they might have entered another country later, the fingerprints remain in the EU wide EuroDac system that can tell authorities what the first country of entry was. The system is hosted by the European Commission in Brussels.

The fingerprints can also tell whether an asylum seeker illegally transited through another EU member state. If an asylum seeker winds up in another EU country than that of where they originally had their finger prints taken, they may be sent back to their original country of entry.
