Repeat asylum application (HASA)

You wish to apply again for asylum in the Netherlands. For example, because something has changed in your country of origin or personal situation.

Conditions

You have to meet all the following conditions:

  • You are in the Netherlands.
  • You have submitted an asylum application in the Netherlands before. The IND has rejected this application. Or that application was first approved, and your residence permit was later withdrawn.

  • You would like to apply for asylum again because your situation has changed and there are new facts and circumstances.

You have to fill in an application form and submit the application in person to the IND. Find out how to do this below.  

When not to fill in this application form

You do not have to fill in an application form in one of the following situations. Instead, you can go to Ter Apel to submit an asylum application:

  • Another EU country was responsible for your last asylum application. That is why the IND has not processed your asylum application. Now, however, the Netherlands is responsible for your asylum application.
  • Another EU country was responsible for your last asylum application. That is why the IND has not processed your asylum application. You have returned to this EU country, or the Netherlands has transferred you to this EU country;
  • The IND rejected your last asylum application. Or the IND has approved your application, but later withdrew your residence permit. You then returned to your country of origin. You have proof of this, such as an original passport.

Costs

A repeat asylum application is free.
