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 and your guardian while you wait for your decision and for some time after the decision. The staff at the Reception Unit do the following things, among others:

  • Determine if you are entitled to a daily allowance – if you don't have any money of your own.
  • Inform you when a decision has been made on your case – if your asylum application has been granted or refused.
  • Provide support if your asylum application is refused and you are to return home.
  • Help you get in contact with your parents.

You and your guardian will be called to a meeting at the Reception Unit. At this meeting you can tell us who you are, where you are from, about your family and how you are feeling. You will talk about what will happen while you are an asylum seeker. You will have the opportunity to ask questions.

At the Reception Unit you can also get help to phone your parents or other relatives to let them know where you are and how you are feeling.
