Asylum procedure in the Netherlands | Alles over de asielprocedure | VluchtelingenWerk Nederland in 2022

Updated: 07-2022

To get protection as a refugee in the Netherlands, you have to request asylum. From that moment, you will be a part of the asylum procedure. During this procedure, the Immigratie- en Naturalisatiedienst (IND) investigates if you are a refugee recording to the European Convention on Human Rights.

In the Netherlands, you can request asylum if you’re afraid to be prosecuted in your country of origin, if you’re afraid of the death penalty or torture, if you’re afraid to be violated or if you are traumatised due to events that happened in your home country.

If your asylum request gets approved, you will obtain a residence permit. If your request gets denied, you will have to leave the Netherlands.


During all the phases of the asylum procedure, asylum seekers will be supported by on of our employees or volunteers. They will explain how the asylum procedure works and which organisations are involved in this process. In these videos you will also see with which aspects VluchtelingenWerk Nederland can assist you.
