2. Asylum

How can I request asylum?

➔ Directorate-General for Aliens Policing (#146)

In Hungary an asylum procedure is opened when the application for recognition is submitted with the refugee authority, therefore, if you have been forced to leave your own country due to persecution or risk of serious harm, you have to declare your intention to request international protection as soon as you enter Hungary. The application for recognition must be submitted to the asylum authority in person, however, you may ask to apply for asylum while undergoing immigration, misdemeanour or criminal proceedings. If this is the applicant’s first asylum procedure in Hungary, he/she will be exempted from all procedural costs of the authority and the court. The costs of interpretation is covered by the Office. If during your travel you lost contact with your family members and you wish to contact them again, the refugee authority can help you through the Red Cross or other humanitarian organisations. To this end, please provide all personal data of your family members, including their last known address. Apart from the refugee authority, you may also request help from other persons and organisations, including lawyers, organisations offering free legal aid or the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
