Your asylum application is registered

The Application Unit is responsible for receiving applications from people who are applying for asylum. When your application has been registered you have the right to be in Sweden while you are waiting for a decision on your application.

At the Application Unit you can get help phoning your parents or other relatives to tell them where you are and how you are feeling.

Conversation with the Migration Agency staff

At the Application Unit you will meet the staff of the Migration Agency. They will ask you many questions, for example

  • how you are feeling
  • what your name is
  • when you were born
  • about your family
  • if you have the address and phone number to your parents
  • where you are from
  • which language you speak
  • how you have travelled to Sweden
  • why you have left your home country and what you think will happen if you go back.

If you are scared of somebody or something it is important that you tell us about it.

The staff will ask these questions so they can enter you into the Migration Agency's computer database. Then they will continue to work on your application. When you come to Sweden you will get similar questions from both the Migration Agency and the municipality where you live. This is because the Migration Agency and the municipality have different computer systems, not because you have given the wrong answers.

It is important for the Migration Agency to know the reasons why you cannot stay in your home country, and how you are feeling now.

If you can't or don't want to say anything to the staff when they ask you, you can always contact the Migration Agency later. You can also do so if there is anything bothering you or if you have any questions.
