English to Pashto (Pushto): Pashto Sample translation
Source text - English Applying for asylum support
Most asylum seekers are not allowed to work. Under exceptional circumstances you may be entitled to work but you would need to seek advice about this.
As the asylum process can be long, you may need to think about how you will support yourself. You may be eligible to apply for support from the National Asylum Support Service (NASS). NASS is the government department responsible for supporting destitute asylum seekers. NASS can provide both accommodation and cash support for food and clothing. If you have accommodation, for example with friends or relatives, you can apply for cash support only. Cash support is also called ‘subsistence support’.
If you are unable to support yourself, you can apply for NASS support at any time during the asylum process. If you are under 18, and are applying for asylum on your own, you will get support from your local authority, not NASS.
