UNHCR Egypt facilitates the process of obtaining legal documents related to civil status for refugees and asylum-seekers. They are counseled on civil status registration, divorce, custody, and the acquisition of Egyptian nationality.
In addition, we support refugees and asylum-seekers in accessing birth registration, especially in cases of improperly documented marriage, inter-marriage, and children born out of wedlock.
We also ensure due process of law by supporting refugees and asylum-seekers through legal proceedings, including criminal and civil disputes. Assistance is available in case of physical attacks, with filing police reports, as well as in cases of detention or arrest related to irregular migration incidents.
