UMA care location

If you are aged  13 to 18, during your first period in the Netherlands (maximum of 3 months), you will be taken care of by the COA at a special location, also referred to as a UMA care location [POL-amv (procesopvanglocatie voor alleenstaande minderjarige vreemdelingen)]. During the period at the UMA care location, the activities take place which must take place within the framework of the resting and preparation period, the general asylum procedure is gone through, and the advice for the follow-up care is formulated. You will then be transferred to the follow-up care most suited to you: care within a family (OWG/Nidos) or KWE/KWG (COA) or an UMA campus (COA).
