The Dutch government can recover costs from the carrier made for an inadmissible person. As from what moment is the carrier responsible financially?

The Dutch government can recover costs incurred by the inadmissible person from the carrier from the moment the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee has issued a  booking request for this person. These could be costs of applying for a replacement travel document or costs of escorts, for example.

The starting date for the calculation of cost of stay will be the date stated in the booking request as the desired date of return of the foreign national (see example).
