Abstract: The right to asylum is included in international documents as well as in the European Union law. The refugee status should also provide the person with additional rights in the territory of the receiving country. The official recognition of a person as a refugee is the outcome of proceedings before the competent authority, which starts with a declaration by the person that he/she applies for asylum. Such an application must be made in the territory of the receiving state, at the border or in the transit area. However, refugees often do not have the opportunity to enter a safe country legally. In the current situation, where a large number of mainly economic migrants are still heading to the European countries, some real refugees remain without the possibility of effectively seeking asylum.

Key Words: International Public Law; European Law; Right to Asylum; Persecution; Geneva Convention; Refugee; Asylum Procedure; Subsidiary Protection; Migration Crisis; the European Union; the Slovak Republic.
