Provision of information on reception


Country Report: Provision of information on reception Last updated: 31/03/21


According to Article 5 IPA, asylum seekers need to be informed about their rights and obligations in the procedure in the language they understand. This includes information about the material reception conditions, rights and obligations in reception accommodation, legal status and access to the labour market. This information is provided to them either by PIC legal representatives during the information session preceding the lodging of the asylum application or later during the procedure, or by the social workers and other officials. Written information on reception conditions is currently outdated and not available in all required languages.
