Matyas Pis, 38, was convicted in April at Belfast Crown Court of trafficking two women into the UK, controlling prostitution and brothel keeping.
Pis ran a brothel from an apartment in the city's Titanic Quarter, but had an address in Dublin where he owned a restaurant.
He was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment and 18 months on licence. However, due to time spent in custody, he was due to be freed within five months.
The UK Border Agency confirmed that, on Tuesday, Pis was escorted from Magilligan Prison to Belfast where he was then put on a plane and returned to his native Hungary.
Mike Golden, of the agency, said: "Human trafficking is a brutal form of organised crime where people are treated as commodities and exploited for criminal gain.
"Working with the police and other law enforcement partners at home and abroad we are determined to tackle the organised criminals who prey on vulnerable people, and take action against those who break the law."
