Rejected asylum seeker

Counselling for rejected asylum seekers.

The Danish Refugee Council is temporarily closed for face-to-face counselling due to Corona virus. If you need counselling, you can contact us on weekdays from 9.00 to 16.00 on telephone 33 73 50 00 or email

If your asylum application in Denmark is rejected, you may have a lot of questions, thoughts and concerns about your situation. 

We can offer you counselling about returning to your home country or talk about the situation you are in as rejected asylum seeker. The conselling can be about all the practical and emotional issues related to your situation.

Counselling with us does not necessarily mean that you wish to return, just that you want counselling concerning your situation. The counselling is confidential. The Danish Refugee Council gives no information to the Danish authorities about your thoughts.
