Once you are recognized as a refugee, you will receive a
refugee card in substitution of your Asylum-Seeker certificate and UNHCR
will try to identify a durable solution. UNHCR recognizes three durable
solutions for refugees: voluntary repatriation, local integration, and
Voluntary Repatriation is when a
refugee can safely and willingly decides to return to his/her country of
origin. UNHCR may be able to assist you to return home if you choose.
Local Integration is when a refugee
is permitted by the country of asylum to legally reside within their
country and is able to enjoy equally most of the rights of a citizen and
is under the protection of the asylum country.
Resettlement is when a refugee leaves
the country of asylum and legally settles in another country that has
agreed to admit him/her as a refugee and to grant him/her a permanent
status in their country. Resettlement is not a right. UNHCR has
no legal obligation to submit you for resettlement. If you qualify for
resettlement, UNHCR will contact you to provide resettlement counselling
and assess your case further. It is important to note that not all
refugees qualify for resettlement and not all refugees will be contacted
by UNHCR for further assessment.
