Subject: Returns Directive – Domestic law

There exists in EU law means by which illegal immigrants can be removed from EU territory if they are found to have broken EU migration law (Directive 2008/115/EC).

Could the Commission please provide details of whether any Member States have transposed this into their own domestic law?

How many Member States have done so, and which?



Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos

on behalf of the Commission


The Commission would refer the Honourable Member to its Communication on EU Return Policy1, which includes, in part IV, a detailed report on the transposition of the Return Directive 2008/115/EC by Member States.
