In recent years, Somali refugees and beneficiaries of subsidiary protection who have been granted protection in Hungary have faced insurmountable difficulties when trying to be reunited with their family members in Hungary.

While Hungarian legislation in force provides for the right to family reunification, Somalis – citizens of a “failed state” – are de facto excluded from this possibility. This policy paper gives an overview of how some EU member states overcome the practical problems related to Somali travel documents, which seemingly in Hungary constitute an absolute obstacle to family reunification.
