The Dutch Council for Refugees (VWN) was established to represent the interests of asylum seekers and refugees. VWN is an independent human rights organization.
Employees of the Dutch Council for Refugees (VWN) support you personally when you go through the asylum procedure. If you have problems with other organizations, VWN can mediate for you. VWN cooperates with your lawyer.
Even if you want your family to come over to the Netherlands (family reunification), the Council for Refugees can help you.
If you do not receive an asylum residence permit, the Council for Refugees can look together with you at your options and support you in making a future plan.
At all reception locations you can go to questions at a consultation hour of the Council for Refugees. See the opening hours for more information.
