If an accompanied minor has asylum motives of their own and wants to explain them personally at the CGRS, the minor can inform the CGRS of this. To do this, it is not necessary that the minor submits a request of their own. The CGRS decides if it will invite the minor and takes their age into account. The interview at the CGRS takes place without the parent(s) or legal guardian. The presence of a lawyer is required. The minor is allowed to bring a trusted person.
A trusted person is someone who professionally specializes in assisting persons or in refugee law, for example a social worker, a psychologist or a therapist. The trusted person must be authorized by the CGRS to attend the interview.
