Q: I would like to join Resettlement / Humanitarian Admission. Can EUAA help?
The European Union Agency for Asylum is not directly involved in the identification of refugees for resettlement programmes as, indeed, our mandate is to support EU Member States with implementing their asylum and reception obligations as provided for under EU law. Member States remain solely responsible for taking “Refugee Status Determination” decisions.
Our advice would be to approach the nearest office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for assistance to receive the most appropriate information about resettlement and the humanitarian admission process. The UNHCR identifies people who are most at risk of serious harm in the country where they are registered and determines if a case qualifies for resettlement.
