Eligibility / Refugee Status Determination (RSD)

Refugee Status Determination (known as ‘eligibility’ by refugees) is a process conducted by the Refugee Affairs Secretariat (RAS).

Due to COVID-19, no new RSD interviews are taking place in Kakuma and Kalobeyei. We will inform you on this page and other mass communication channels once regular RSD procedures resume.

Previously interviewed cases are currently being processed and refugee recognition letters are being issued. When your decision letter is ready for collection you will receive and SMS from UNHCR on when and where to collect it.
