Are you looking for information on the asylum procedure in the Netherlands? These organisations can support you during this process.

Asylum procedure

Different rules apply if you fall under Temporary Protection. You do not have to go to the Central Agency for Asylum Seekers (COA) in Ter Apel. With Temporary Protection you will have to register in the municipality where you are staying. You also have to make an appointment with the IND to pick up proof of residence.

If you are not covered by temporary protection, read more about your options on this page.
