UncategorizedRepatriation Center Lawyer



A repatriation lawyer is a legal expert who acts to protect the legal rights of foreign nationals who are subject to a deportation order or who are at risk of such a decision, to provide them with legal advice and to represent them in relevant judicial or administrative processes.

Deportation refers to the fact that a person is in a country illegally or for various other reasons (e.g. committing a crime, creating a security threat) is the process of removal from that country. A repatriation lawyer helps people who are in this kind of situation to exercise their legal rights against deportation in the first place.

The role of a repatriation lawyer is highly critical, especially given the risks that may occur if a person is deported (for example, the risk of being subjected to torture or persecution). A Repatriation Lawyer helps to ensure that a person’s fundamental rights are protected and that a fair trial process is implemented.


Which Foreign Nationals Are Being Held in the Repatriation Centers?

Repatriation Centers are facilities used within the scope of combating illegal migration in Turkey and where foreign nationals are temporarily housed. Which foreign nationals will be held in these centers is determined by Turkish laws. Foreign nationals who usually have conditions such as the following can be held in these centers:

Illegal immigrants or foreign nationals staying in Turkey without permission can be placed in these centers when a deportation decision is made.

How Does the Process Work for Foreign Nationals who have been given an Administrative Supervision Decision and are Being Held in a Repatriation Center?

The process for foreign nationals who have been granted an administrative supervision decision and are being held in the Repatriation Center operates within the framework of the relevant legislation of Turkey. Administrative supervision is a practice in which an individual’s freedom is restricted for a certain period of time in order to complete deportation proceedings.

The administrative oversight process is as follows:

  1. Administrative Supervision Decision

If the competent authorities decide that a foreign national should be deported, they may make an administrative supervision decision about this person. This decision is made by evaluating whether the foreigner has a situation that will prevent or delay his exit from Turkey.

  1. Placement in the Repatriation Center

The foreign national for whom the administrative supervision decision has been taken is placed in the Repatriation Center for the completion of this process.

  1. Information

The foreign national should be informed about his/her rights and the deportation process. He is also informed that he has the right to appeal the decision.

  1. Right of Objection

A foreign national has the right to appeal against the administrative supervision decision and the deportation decision. The objection can be made to the competent administrative and judicial authorities.

  1. Time Restriction

The period of administrative supervision should be limited to the minimum period mandatory for the deportation of a foreign national. The duration of administrative supervision may not exceed the maximum period specified in the relevant legislation.

  1. Deportation Process

When the administrative supervision process is completed and the appeals are rejected, the foreign national is deported.

During the execution of all these processes, the fundamental rights and freedoms of the foreign national should be respected, humane conditions should be provided and the rules of international law should be observed. In particular, care should be taken regarding refugee rights and international protection applications.

The Deportation Decision and the Travel Expenses of the Foreign Person

Within the framework of a country’s migration policies, for certain reasons (illegal immigration, criminal situations, security threats, etc.) a deportation (deportation) decision may be made to a foreign person. After the implementation of the deportation decision, this person must be sent to his/her own country or to a accepting third country. There are the following approaches regarding the travel expenses incurred during this process:

  • Paying Paying One’s Own Expenses: If a person is financially able to cover the travel expenses, this person may be asked to pay the expenses himself.
  • The State Covers the Expenses: In some cases, especially in cases where the foreigner does not have financial means, the state may cover the travel expenses.
