Asylum seekers have the right to be informed about their rights and obligations relating to material reception conditions, at the latest, within 15 days from the date of submission of asylum application,[1] as well as about NGOs providing free legal aid.[2]

The House Rules of Asylum and Reception centres are translated in languages asylum seekers understand. The camp managers in Asylum Centres hold the information sessions with every person who arrives in the camp, while the House Rules are clearly displayed on the bulletin board in English, Farsi and Arabic. Interpreters are also available for Arabic and Farsi in Banja Koviljača (Farsi interpreter ensured by NGOs only during regular visits), Sjenica and Krnjača, the latter also providing interpreters for Pashtu and Urdu funded by the Crisis Response and Policy Centre (CRPC) and IOM.
