According to Article 4 IPA all applicants have to be granted access to UNHCR and organisations providing legal counselling.

Visits to reception centres are possible during official hours with a visitor’s permit issued by the social worker only.[1] Visitors have to submit their identification document at the reception.[2] NGOs and their staff working in the Asylum Home and the branch facilities have to be approved by the Ministry of Interior. Asylum seekers have access to NGOs working in the reception centres according to their schedule. Visits were not possible in 2020 due to COVID-19. NGOs and their staff were able to visit the asylum centres only if they were approved by the Ministry of Interior.
