The Refugee Facilities Administration (SUZ)of the Ministry of the Interior

As an organizational unit of the Government, SUZ is under the authority of the deputy minister of the interior for internal safety. Three units of the ministry: SUZ, the Asylum and Migration Policy Department and the Foreign Police Service are in charge of the whole agenda of asylum and migration.
SUZ cooperates with a range of governmental and international institutions, local authorities and non-governmental organisations. Since 2006 some of its activities have been co-financed with the support of the European Refugee Fund – prevention, integration and voluntary returns programmes, equipment of the centres and some other services, to name just a few. Starting in 2009, these resources were boosted by the Return Fund of the European Union and European Fund for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals (nowadays these funds altogether called Solidarity and Management of Migration Flows).

Our Mission

SUZ was established in 1996 as a budgetary organisation of the Ministry of the Interior. Its existence resulted from split of the then Department for refugees in order to separate the governance of asylum policy and administrative asylum procedure from the provision of services to asylum seekers. Starting in 2006, SUZ took over the facilities for the detention of foreigners and in 2009 it set up a network of counselling centres in county towns to support foreigners’ integration.
Through SUZ the Czech Republic provides accommodation and other services to a broad focus group of international protection seekers, international protection holders and detained foreigners as required by Acts no. 325/1999 Coll., On Asylum, and no. 326/1999 Coll., on the Residence of Foreign Nationals in the Czech Republic.
