FOOD AND LIVING ALLOWANCEIf your annual income is less than 6000 euro (data actual for 2022 year) or you brought with you less amount of money in The Netherlands, you are entitled to the full amount of asylum seeker’s weekly allowance. It consists of food allowance and living allowance. If COA provides you with food, you will receive only a living allowance. A food allowance is recalculated for inflation once a year.
ONE-TIME ALLOWANCEThe asylum seeker receives a one-time allowance for kitchen utensils for self-cooking (then this money deducted from your allowance); travel expenses for the asylum procedure, visits to medical institutions, education; reimbursement for volunteer work, if you work for COA; expenses for the education of school-age children. In order to receive money for transportation, you should go to the COA info desk in advance with a paper letter or email, confirming your appointment.
