At the IO, the applicant fills in the CGRS questionnaire with the help of an interpreter. In this questionnaire, he states the reasons why he has fled his country of origin. In every subsequent application, the applicant has to give new reasons.
The IO employee reads the answers to the questionnaire to the applicant, who signs for approval and receives a copy of the questionnaire.
The IO sends the asylum file to the CGRS, which will examine it thoroughly.
