Use of personal details from passengers to improve border control

Evaluation of the API-directive (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This current study evaluates the use of API-(Advance Passenger Information) data in the Netherlands. The research is a follow-up study to the evaluation of API conducted in 2014. At that time, the API-system was still being developed.
For this second evaluation study, two main research questions have been formulated:

  1. What can be said regarding the use and the effectiveness of API-details in aid of border controls and the prevention of illegal immigrants, and in which way have earlier recommendations regarding the API been considered?
  2. To what extent can recent relevant European developments have an impact on the way in which the Netherlands uses API data?
