Final refusal of asylum

The Refugee Appeals Board considers appeals against asylum decisions made by the Immigration Service.

As a general rule, your appeal will be considered orally by the Refugee Appeals Board. Accordingly, you will be called to a meeting with the Refugee Appeals Board where you will be able to explain why you left your country of origin or former country of residence.

You are entitled to have a lawyer assist you.

If the Refugee Appeals Board decides that you must leave Denmark, they will also set a time limit for your departure. The time limit may be set for immediate departure, 7 days or 30 days.

The Refugee Appeals Board's decision is final.

If you have received a final refusal of asylum from the Refugee Appeals Board and have to leave Denmark, you will be called for an interview with the Danish Return Agency.

The interview will be held before your time limit for leaving Denmark expires. During your interview with the Danish Return Agency, you will be asked if you wish to cooperate and assist with planning your departure from Denmark.

You are obliged to return to your country of origin, and it is your own responsibility to leave.
