Asylum Procedure, Rights, and Obligations

As a signatory to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, North Macedonia has developed procedures for determining who is a refugee among those applying for asylum in the country. The administrative institution responsible for the asylum procedure is the Sector for Asylum, within the Ministry of Interior.

Here you will find information in different languages about the asylum procedure, rights and obligations as an asylum seeker as well as the potential outcome of the asylum procedure and specific information for vulnerable persons.

You can browse the asylum brochure in the available languages below:
