CHANGING WRONG INFORMATION ON YOUR ASYLUM SEEKER CARD ("WHITE CARD")

Sometimes your name might be written wrong or the birth date is not correct in your white card and it normally is a good idea to correct that. If you have already had your full registration appointment (“first interview”), you can correct the details written on your asylum seeker’s card, such as your name, surname, date of birth or nationality. In order to do so, you must go in person to a Regional Asylum Office and fill in an application to correct this information. No one can go on your behalf. You must bring any original documents certifying the correct data. Such documents could be your passport or identity card from your home country, your family book, or your civil register. You will be informed later if the corrections have been accepted. In this case a new card will be issued. You can make this application at any Regional Asylum Office, it does not have to be the one where you had your full registration appointment.
