After registration – what happens then?

After you have applied for asylum you will be registered at a Reception Unit.

The Reception Unit is responsible for keeping in touch with you while you wait for your decision and for some time after the decision. The staff at the Reception Unit does the following things, among others:

  • Determines if you are entitled to a daily allowance – if you don't have any money of your own.
  • Informs you when a decision has been made on your case – if your asylum application has been granted or refused.
  • Provides support if your asylum application is refused and you are to return home.

If you live in a flat rented by the Migration Agency, you will meet the Receptions Unit's accommodation staff. They will inform you about the rules and provide practical information, for example about what can be found in the local area.

On the following pages you can read more about the process. You can also use the headings in the left menu.
