Section 88. Age examination

If, in a case concerning asylum or in a case concerning a residence permit for a family member, it is not possible to establish with reasonable certainty whether the foreign national is over or under the age of 18, the foreign national may be requested to allow himself or herself to be examined in order to clarify his or her age. The result of the examination shall be assessed in relation to the other information in the case.
If the foreign national refuses to allow himself or herself to be examined, he or she shall be made aware that this may be of significance for the assessment of the case.
The King may issue regulations containing further provisions on the implementation of age examinations.
