Belgrade Centre for Human Rights Visit Website

Material reception conditions may be reduced or withdrawn if the asylum seeker possesses his or her own financial assets or if he or she starts to receive income from employment sufficient to cover material reception conditions, as well as if he or she misuses the allowance received.[1]

A decision on reduction or withdrawal of material reception conditions shall be rendered by the CRM and can be challenged before the Asylum Office.[2] If a decision has been made to reduce or withdraw the cash allowance, the appeal will not have a suspensive effect.[3]
