Asylum seekers may be given asylum in the Netherlands if they need protection from persecution in their own country on religious or ethnic grounds, for instance. The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) assesses whether an asylum seeker needs protection. Special rules apply to unaccompanied foreign nationals under the age of 18. People who are granted asylum get help from the municipality in finding a place to live.
