Welcome!

The aim of  the Information Centre in the Asylum Affairs Division of the Migration Department under the Ministry ofthe Interior is to provide information to the staff dealing with asylum cases  on situation of the asylum applicants' countries of  origin or  third countries, through which asylum applicants arrive in Lithuania. The necessary information pertains to practices of fundamental human rights and freedoms in a particular country, political and security situation,  etc.

Information on the countries of origin and third countries is selected, evaluated and produced in separate reports according to the Common EU Guidelines for processing Country of Origin Information (2008), which demand that information is up-to-date, accurate, objective,  reliable and corresponding to the  information sources indicated in the footnotes.

 The reports are stored in an electronical database which is accessible not only to asylum decision makers but  to other staff of the Migration Department responsible for taking decisions on the legal status of foreigners, to courts, lawyers, State Security Department and NGO‘s.
