Asylum request

A written request to be recognised as a refugee under the 1951 Geneva Convention.
If the request is granted the asylum seeker receives a residence permit. Granted requests may refer to a request of the current or a previous year. If the request for asylum is definitely rejected, the asylum seeker is removed from the country. This can take place by one of three methods: deportation, departure under supervision, and police inspection of address after notice to leave.
