The Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers [COA]

The Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers [COA] arranges the care of asylum seekers in the Netherlands. If you are younger than 13 years, you will live with a foster family during the asylum procedure. If you are 13 years or older, you will go to a special COA reception centre for young asylum seekers. The COA ensures that you have accommodation, food and a health insurance. You can also contact the COA for help with contacting a doctor. The COA is an independent organization and does not decide about your asylum application. You will find more information about the COA on this website: http://www.coa.nl/
