The asylum procedure counseling assists people seeking protection by providing information and legal advice. Our support includes:
- Understanding the asylum process to make well-informed decisions when necessary.
- Confidential individual consultations before and during the asylum process, if needed, until the irrevocable conclusion of the procedure.
- Assistance in understanding rights and obligations in the asylum process and in presenting relevant reasons for fleeing in a structured manner during the hearing.
The counseling is independent of authorities, free of charge, individual, and non-binding.
It is open to all those seeking protection and applicants. Participation is voluntary. Legal advice within the framework of asylum procedure counseling may also be provided in accordance with the Legal Services Act.
The Saxon Refugee Council offers asylum procedure counseling for refugees in Dresden and Leipzig.
