The aim of the country guidance documents is to assist asylum decision-makers and policy-makers in their daily work and to foster convergence in the assessment of applications for international protection and the type of protection granted in the context of the common European asylum system. Member States have an obligation to take into account the common analysis and guidance notes when examining applications for international protection, without prejudice to their competence to decide on individual applications for international protection.

The EUAA country guidance documents are produced in accordance with Article 11 of the EUAA Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2021/2303). Learn more about the methodology and assessment approach of the common analysis and guidance notes in the 'Country Guidance: explained'.
