Seeking asylum while in detention

If you are detained/your liberty is deprived in Georgia and wish to make an asylum application, you can do so by:

  • writing a short letter in a language in which you can effectively communicate, stating clearly that you wish to seek asylum in Georgia, who and where you are and your reasons for applying for asylum;
  • sending this letter directly to the Division of International Protection Issues of the Migration Department under the Ministry of Internal Affairs through confidential mail from the detention facility;
  • asking social workers or administration staff of the detention facility for assistance with writing or sending your letter, if necessary.
