Provision of information on reception


Country Report: Provision of information on reception Last updated: 10/07/24


According to Article 5 IPA, asylum seekers need to be informed about their rights and obligations in the procedure in a 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. General information on the house rules of the accommodation facility is provided by social workers as part of the accommodation process. Social workers also give asylum seekers a short version of the house rules in writing in the language they understand and open a personal file for them in which all documentation on their reception is gathered. Additional information is provided to them by the EUAA, other officials or the NGOs.
