The asylum application: first steps in the Prefecture

Extract from Récit de Daniel • 40 years old • Man • Cameroonian

At the police station, they took my fingerprints, made a report and gave me a summons to the Prefecture. When I went to the Prefecture, I was again fingerprinted and photographed and explained the steps to follow for the asylum application. They told me to return that same day, in the afternoon, to move forward on my case. At 3 p.m. I was therefore again at the Prefecture, where I received a bank card and a form to fill in, in which I had to explain the reasons why I had left Italy. The credit card allows me to receive the ADA (Allocation for Asylum Seekers), but there is a waiting period of 45 days before I start receiving this monthly sum (around 340 euros).
