For those seeking asylum without a parent or other legal guardian

This information is for those who have arrived without their parents and has applied for asylum (protection) in Sweden.

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 asylum-seeking children and youth are entitled to.

The information can be used by children who are asylum seekers, by other young people who want to know more about what asylum is or by adults who want help explaining the asylum process to children and young people.

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.
