celebrates its second birthday !

The website has been online for two years now. The CGRS has created this website to correctly inform applicants for international protection about the asylum procedure.

The website was created in 9 languages (Dutch, French, English, Spanish, Arabic, Farsi, Pashtou, Somali and Tigrinya) and is structured around 4 short films that run through the entire asylum procedure. In the videos, we follow Zana, an ex-asylum seeker, who explains the course of her asylum procedure herself. All the text is also available in an audio version.

The content of the website focuses mainly on how applicants can properly prepare for the interview at the CGRS and on the course of the interview itself.

We would like to thank all the counselors, lawyers, volunteers and others who share this website with the applicants for international protection they assist and thus give them the opportunity to give them an insight into what is happening at the CGRS even before their arrival at the CGRS. Optimal preparation can contribute to a better experience of the asylum procedure.
