Abstract Undocumented migrants’ access to healthcare is subject to national regulations, which differ across the EU member states, and practice models which follow different logics. The research project, NowHereland - Health Care in NowHereland – Improving Services for Undocumented Migrants in the EU, approaches this complexity. The project work package, Policy Compilation, delivers a report for each member state focusing on policy, introduces comparative reflections in relation to undocumented migrants’ right to healthcare and offers a preliminary clustering of the member states based on collected data. The term used in this project is thus, “undocumented migrants”, which may be defined as third-country nationals without a required permit authorising them to regularly stay in the EU member states. The type of entry (e.g. legal or illegal border crossing) is thus not considered to be relevant. There are many routes to becoming undocumented; the category includes those who have been unsuccessful in the asylum procedures or who have violated the terms of their visas. The group does not include EU citizens from new member states, nor migrants who are within the asylum seeking process, unless they have exhausted the asylum process and are thus considered to be rejected asylum seekers.
