Reception platform for asylum seekers (PADA)

Presentation of the PADA/SPADA

Initial reception of asylum seekers is provided by the Structures de Premier Accueil des Demandeurs d’Asile (formerly PADA, reception platform for asylum seekers), which provide several distinct services.
The PADAs are first and foremost the gateway to the asylum procedure: anyone wishing to apply for asylum must go to the PADA to obtain an invitation to the Guichet unique pour demandeur d’asile (GUDA), which brings together the services of the prefecture and the Office français de l’immigration et de l’intégration (OFII).

Once they have passed through the GUDA, the PADAs provide support to asylum seekers who have not yet been referred to accommodation by the OFII.
