Welcome to the ‘Help’ website run by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency in Somalia. Here, refugees, asylum-seekers, and Somali refugee returnees can find information on their rights, obligations, and UNHCR supported services and programmes in Somalia.

This website provides a general overview of what you need to know about your stay in Somalia, including where you can go to seek further assistance. Therefore, information on this website may not be equally always applicable to every individual, as it depends on each individual circumstance. Here you can find information about:

➡ How to apply for asylum in Somalia
➡ Where to find assistance (legal, health, educational and other kinds of support)
➡ How to contact UNHCR in Somalia
➡ COVID-19 information
➡ How to reunite with your family
➡ Resettlement
➡ Voluntary return to Somalia
➡ How to submit complaint or feedback
➡ Information for stateless

This website is subject to regular review and retrospective update in accordance with changing situations.

Please note that ALL services provided by UNHCR are provided for free. At no point will you be asked to pay for any of the services provided by UNHCR or any of its partners. Please inform a UNHCR staff member should anyone approach you and request a fee in return for services provided. If you provide false or incomplete information, this can be considered fraud and you might lose your entitlement to assistance.
