Correction: The right to work for asylum seeker

08/06/2019

The right to work has not expired for any asylum seeker on 1 June 2019 simply because of the new law entering into force.

Due to amendments to the Aliens Act entering into force on 1 June 2019, there have been changes in asylum seekers' right to work. The law amendment has turned out to be complicated: the interpretation of the law has proved challenging and has had to be discussed more than usual, both within the agency and with the Ministry of the Interior. We have removed the old customer bulletins from our website, so that the information they contained would not confuse our customers and their employers any more than it already has.
