For those seeking asylum with a parent or other legal guardian

This information is for children who have come to Sweden together with their family to seek asylum. Seeking asylum means coming to a new country and asking for protection from war or persecution.

Here we describe what steps you go through as an asylum seeker, how the Swedish Migration Agency decides who is entitled to asylum, and what support you and your family are entitled to while you wait for a decision.

The information can be read in different ways. You can either read everything from the first to the last page to get knowledge about what happens when you apply for asylum. Or you can read the section that feels most important to you right now.
