With regard to accessing the asylum procedure from detention, the law clarifies that detainees, upon hearing their rights, are notified that their asylum claim will be inadmissible if it is submitted 5 days after their rights have been notified. The claim is deemed to be admissible after 5 days only if it is based on elements or events occurred after these 5 days. However, for persons coming from safe countries of origin (see Safe Country of Origin), a claim submitted 5 days after they have had their rights notified may be deemed inadmissible.[1]
