Refusal – what happens then?

Refusal means that you have received a NO to your application for asylum. You cannot stay in Sweden.

You and your guardian will be called to a meeting at the Migration Agency if your asylum application has been refused. During the meeting you will receive help understanding the content of the decision. Whether you appeal the decision or not, you will be summoned to the Migration Agency to talk about your situation and your thoughts about the future.

If you want to accept the decision you can say that you accept the decision. This is called declaration of acceptance and means that you don't want to appeal the decision. You cannot take back a declaration of acceptance.

Appeal a refusal

You and your guardian can appeal the decision with the help of your public counsel if you think that your situation has not been assessed correctly.

Appeal means that you and your guardian write to the Migration Agency to say that you don't agree with what the Migration Agency has decided. You want the court to change the Migration Agency's decision.
