Update (16/03/2020): In light of the COVID-19 developments, Nasc are moving to a limited legal service. Until Monday 30th March, our legal service will move primarily to a phone and email service. This means that there will be no Walk-In service.
If you need information or advice, you can call our legal team. Our phone lines will be open Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
Mark: 083 198 1728
If you already have an existing file with Nasc, it would be helpful if you have your file number when you phone us. If you need to speak to us in Arabic, French, Portuguese or Russian please let us know in advance and we will do our best to facilitate this.
You can also email us at email@example.com.
If we are very busy it may take some time for us to call or email you back so please be patient.
We are adding all the immigration and asylum related COVID-19 updates to our new COVID-19 Know Your Rights page.
We will keep our website updated with any new developments.
Nasc operates a walk-in service four days each week (seven sessions). We provide information and advice on a range of immigration and asylum-related issues. The service is free, non-judgemental and confidential. We can see up to five people at each session. The walk-in service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
What can I expect at the Walk-In service?
The first five people who register for the walk-in service will be seen. Our reception staff will take your details and you’ll be asked to wait for your turn to be seen. You will be seen in the order in which you have registered. Nasc's office opens at 9am and the Walk-In service commences at 9.30am.
|Monday||Doors open at 9.00 AM||Doors open 2:00 PM|
|Tuesday||Doors open at 9.00 AM||Doors open 2:00 PM|
|Wednesday||Doors open at 9.00 AM||Doors open 2:00 PM|
|Thursday||Doors open at 9.00 AM||CLOSED PM|
On the last Thursday of every month, we hold an evening Walk-In session beginning at 6pm.
We may occasionally have to close the service. You'll be able to find any changes to our opening hours here.
At the walk-in service, your case will be assessed and one of our team will do their best to assist you. If your issue relates to something that Nasc does not deal with (family law, criminal law, housing) then we will do our best to refer you to another organisation that can help you. If your immigration issue is complex, you may be invited to return for an appointment with our advocacy service.
PLEASE NOTE: Our office is located on the first floor and we do not have an elevator/lift. If you would like to attend our walk-in service but you have mobility issues which mean you are unable to use stairs, please contact our team on 021 427 3594 and we will do our best to make alternative arrangements for you.
