Counsel at the asylum interview
As an asylum seeker, you have the right to have a legal counsel at the asylum interview. The counsel decides whether it is necessary for him or her to participate in the interview. Read more in the section Legal advice.
If you have a special reason why you need to bring another support person with you to your asylum interview, the interviewer will decide in the beginning of the interview whether this person may participate.
Your support person can ask in advance whether he or she is allowed to be present at the interview by requesting this in writing. To give us enough time to reply to the request, your support person must send an email to email@example.com as soon as you have received an invitation to an interview. Your support person must state in the email why it is necessary for him or her to participate in the interview. For data security reasons, please do not send any personal details by email. Only your customer number should be mentioned in the email.
