If the person is granted asylum, he or she will be granted refugee status and a residence permit. Asylum seekers usually seek to protect humanitarian protection law. Humanitarian security may be due to an environmental disaster or poor security in the country of origin. The asylum seeker lives in a reception center. It is the place where applicants for international protection are located, where services are provided to them during the asylum process.
