International Protection / Political Asylum


Application - Issue

The application for political asylum or “application for international protection” aims to obtain the recognition of the refugee status or the subsidiary protection status.

Under the Geneva Convention, foreign nationals can apply for asylum by submitting their application to the Border Police upon entry in Italy.

Alternatively they can apply to the Immigration Office of the Police Headquarters of the place where they are based.

Foreign nationals must submit their application for international protection personally along with the following documents:

  •  all elements or documentation at their disposal required to support their application namelyrelated to their age, identity, nationality, background, countries and places of previous residence, previous asylum applications, travel routes, identity and travel documents and any other relevant documentation.
  • 4 passport-sized photographs
  • original passport, if in their possession

The applicants will be photographed and fingerprinted and their application will be forwarded to the local Commission for the Recognition of Refugee Status which is responsible for taking a decision on it.

If the application procedure is not settled within 60 days from the lodging of application for international protection, the applicant is allowed to work on the condition that the undue delay is not ascribed to them.

To calculate the 60-day deadline, reference is made to the date of the receipt which is issued on the same day as application for international protection is made.
