Asylum application decision

Last updated: 12/4-2023

After the Migration Agency has completed the asylum application they make an assessment. You will then receive a decision granting or refusing your asylum application.

The Migration Agency's decision is based on your account and on the evidence you have provided in support of your account. It is also based on what the Migration Agency knows about the situation in your home country.

The Migration Agency's case officer will tell you about the decision

Once the Migration Agency has made a decision they will send you a letter. This letter will tell you when and where you have to meet the Migration Agency's case officer.

The case officer will tell you whether your asylum application has been granted or refused. The case officer will also describe how the Migration Agency has reached this decision.

In some cases you will be invited to meet with a case officer before the Migration Agency has made a decision. In these cases the case officer will talk to you about what your rights are and what is going to happen when you receive your decision.
