During the asylum procedure, you have access to free counselling and legal representation. You will be assigned a legal representative upon arrival at a federal reception centre, who will support you during your asylum and appeal procedure. Each federal reception centre has also a free legal counselling centre which is open every day and where you can ask any other question you may have.
Is your asylum procedure still pending and you are not living in a federal reception centre, but in a cantonal centre? You can contact a legal advice office in this canton.
If you have questions before or after the asylum procedure, you can contact one of the legal advice offices in your canton of residence.
UNHCR does not provide individual legal representation or counselling.
