Applying for Asylum and Refugee Status in Germany

When speaking about asylum and refugees in Germany, the federal government recognizes several categories:

  • Category 1 – Protection from Political Persecution
  • Category 2 – Protection as a Refugee
  • Category 3 – Subsidiary Protection
  • Category 4 – Prohibition of Deportation

If you fall into any of these categories then you can apply for asylum in Germany.

Category 1 – Protection from Political Persecution

To be politically persecuted means there is a state or quasi-state (state-sponsored militia or group) that is violating your rights with such an intensity that you cannot have normal peace as an individual. These violations must be against the freedom of your personal religious beliefs, political convictions, or other intangible characteristics that define you as an individual. These violations must be so severe that they violates your human dignity beyond what is acceptable in your home country.

Poverty and civil war do not necessarily qualify you for asylum based on political persecution.

Category 2 – Protection as a Refugee

You can earn refugee status if you face a justified fear of persecution in your home country based on your race, nationality, religion, membership of a social group, and/or political beliefs.

Any of the following can qualify as a persecutor:

  • State
  • Groups who are part of the state
  • Non-state groups who physically dominate a territory

Persecution is defined as acts that severely violate your basic human rights, or a combination of acts that taken together severely violate your basic human rights.

Category 3 – Subsidiary Protection

If you don’t qualify as being politically persecuted or as a refugee, you may qualify under subsidiary protection if you are at risk of serious injury in your home country. Examples in this category include:

  • Your life is at risk due to an armed conflict in your country
  • You face torture or inhumane/degrading treatment in your home country
  • You face the death penalty in your home country

Category 4 – Prohibition of Deportation

If you did not qualify under the previous three categories, you may be granted Prohibition of Deportation status if either of the following are true:

  • You face a substantial concrete danger in your home country
  • You face an extreme general danger in your home country

Making an Application

To get this process started you need to apply for asylum, which can be done at places like:

The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) reports that you can also make an application for asylum at an initial reception facility. Asylum-seeker processing facilities are growing throughout the country on a large scale and now it seems these are located in virtually every medium to large city, as well as in many small cities and towns.

German law says that you need to apply for asylum “immediately,” upon entering the country. You won’t be considered as an asylum seeker officially until you have registered as such with a federal authority.

Asylum Personal Interview

After you make your application you will be interviewed about your personal details and circumstances, as well as fingerprinted. The interview is the most important part of your application; the decision to grant you asylum or not is based largely on the interview, which is video recorded. You will also have an interpreter at your interview.

You will be asked to provide specific details about how you are being persecuted, and you are strongly encouraged to provide evidence of this persecution, if possible. Keep in mind that what you say will be cross-checked with information from UN agencies, non-profit organizations, German foreign intelligence, academic reports, and news stories.

Decision for your Case

While your application is processed you will be assigned to an initial reception facility. These are located throughout the country, in large cities and small towns. Where you will be assigned depends on which federal office you apply for asylum at, as well as the capacity of nearby initial reception facilities.

During the time your application is processed you have the right to live in Germany, and will be issued a temporary residence permit.

Once a decision is reached in your case you will be mailed a notification. If needed this will contain a translation of the decision.

If your application for asylum on refugee or political persecution grounds is accepted you will receive instructions for the next steps you can take, as well as a residence permit that is valid for up to three years. If you receive subsidiary protection you will receive a residence permit that is valid for up to one year. If you receive a “prohibition of deportation” decision you may also get a residence permit valid for up to one year.

If your application is rejected you will receive a deportation notice with additional information about how you can appeal and find legal help.

Can you work while you’re in Germany?

BAMF is the agency that will rule on your asylum application. It will make one of the following five decisions:

  • You have the right to political asylum – you can work without restrictions
  • You have refugee protection status – you can work without restrictions
  • You have subsidiary protection – you can work without restrictions
  • You will not be deported immediately (prohibition of deportation) – the immigration authority may grant you permission to work if it finds that you have not provided false information about your identity
  • Your application for asylum is denied – you cannot work and must return to your home country or appeal the decision

While you are waiting for your decision

From the time you apply for asylum until your decision is made, you have the right to reside in Germany, but you cannot start working immediately. If you want to work during the period you are waiting for your application to be processed, you will need to be granted permission to work by BAMF. At minimum this can be granted after three months from your application. Technically you will also need to obtain permission to work from your local employment agency, however BAMF will often do this for you when it issues your right to work while your application for asylum is being processed. You can find specific information on working while your application is processed here.

In Conclusion

It should be noted that the current government policy for asylum is somewhat different from what is written in law. In August of 2015 the government announced it would prepare to accept 800,000 refugees. As this stated policy is implemented, it remains to be seen how strictly and to what extent all laws written on paper will be enforced. At the time of this writing EU officials are conducting meetings to try and determine a comprehensive immigration plan.

You can find more information on the asylum process with the following links:

Note for readers: I compiled this information by reading various government websites. I don’t have direct experience with asylum/refugee cases so I can’t be of much more help. Feel free to leave a question or comment though and perhaps someone with helpful information will respond.

    If u get german refugee and then can i go back my country after sometime???
    If i can go and can i come back german???
    How it possible please give me answer and i m just 19 year old.

    1. Administrator Post author

      Hello Tommy,

      The best information I can find is on this website:

      According to this it is possible. I believe you would apply with BAMF but I can’t find specific information about what the application asks. According to this website, what kind of travel document you apply for depends on what type of refugee you are (formal refugee or resettled refugee). Here is what it says: “Formal refugee status also means that recognised refugees can request a Convention Travel Document to facilitate travel outside of Germany. This is not available to resettled refugees, who can instead apply for the much less widely-recognised German Travel Document for Foreigners.”

      Hopefully someone else reading who knows more specific information will comment on your question. Good luck

    NON-CAUCASIANS make me laugh !!! [Don’t know you’re born !!]

    I have been trapped in the u.k. for 30 YEARS against my will.Denied living with my own CAUCASIAN family in Australia for 30 years, since 1987.

    I am not british. The british have molested me, burnt my house down, killed all my pets, attacked me, attacked me whilst homeless,murdered a friend in Ireland, U.D.R. man threatened us,protestant orangeman man threatened to murder us,NEVER arrested anyone even ONCE, but have arrested me for defending myself and arrested me, locked me up in hospital, called me “MAD” because I do not want to mix with them after all the INJUSTICE, NO COMPENSATION & Post Traumatic stress they gave me.

    I now live in a land where there are barely any CAUCASIANS left and muslims look at me like I am a piece of sh1t when I do my shopping.

    The U.N. KALERGI PLAN and BARBARA SPECTRE LERNER are all behind this sh1t. THE MAGOG INVASION, led by satans’ immigration policies. The african APEX GANG of Melbourne Australia were allowed in….and now RIOT & ATTACK CAUCASIANS. Just adds INSULT TO INJURY !

    Mr. Administrator , can a person be eligible to apply for asylum on the basis of discriminatory and full of hatred behavior of society towards a specific profession which a person had in past and he is suffering with unemployment ( more then 3 years ) just because of conservative social noms facts. I am talking about liquor manufacturing profession in pakistan.

    1. Ivan

      I am not administrator, but by reading the article, you can clearly see that social norm does not classify as state actor, as for category 1 and 2 stated.

      However, if you can proof that you are until stress by a non state actor with formal/informal territorial control of your land, and are prosecuting you. You might be able to petition your case.

      Hint: Criminal organisation, Religious Zealots, terrorist organization, might occasionally fit into this category, bare in mind if the group was removed from territory, your deportation might follow (if you only granted temporary permit rather than formal refugee status). And you need at least 6-7 year to get permanent residency.

      Also, Pakistan is classified as a SAFE country, absurd as it might sound, there are good chance that category 2 application will not be granted.

      As for category 1, good luck, but this would be a case that require lax interpretation of law, hopefully you know the right people in Germany.

  46. Imran

    I am an MBA graduate with 10+ yrs experience and the wages that I get is way too less which is usually given to candidates with 2 or 3 yrs experience. There are people who says that wages are good in India but trust me there is nothing like that. I am facing a big challenge to grow financially and I am nowhere.

    I was told by my friend, I can apply for asylum in Germany and prove my professional and financial growth which is very poor and it can be accepted as Indian market is not giving me what I actually deserve.

    Many Indians might not like my comments but I am helpless to say this and its a fact and I am facing it.

    I need to understand what is the best option to move to germany or how to make my asylum case stronger.

    I really do not want to follow the wrong path to earn money. I want to follow everything legally. Can someone help me please.

    I have a family my mother and my sibblings in India and my mother is dependent on me and my brother.

    Please advice if I need to file an asylum case for me. I cannot apply for immigration process because I am not financially strong. They demand huge amounts and bank balance for immigration process and I dont have that much money. The only option I see is Asylum.

    Can someone please guide me the right way.

    I look forward to your kind reply.


    1. aGerman

      That won’t be working. You must show that you are in one of the groups. Looking for a better wage is not a reason for asylum, you will be rejected, are not allowed to work and then you are deported back.

      If you have qualifications, you may apply with a company. If they assure the authorities that they hire you, you will have a chance. A low chance though.

    If someone’s refugee application is rejected in Germany and if he or she appeals…until his or her stay in Germany can he or she work and study? Can a rejected asylum seeker receive a refugee travel document? Can he or she travel outside the European union after 3 years except his or her home country?

      No working for a refugee in Germany during the first three months. After 3 months, you can work, even if you are rejected but it will be hard to find a job.

      Not that I know of. Generally, once you have left the country, you are denied entry.

    I am Hadush , currently working as a teacher in government school in Addis Ababa. As you knew, there is a conflict between the federal government of Ethiopia and Tigray region . Because of this reason many Tigrian people in Addis Ababa and other stares are arresting by federal govermentdue to being Tigrians. since I am from Tigriay region but living in Addis Ababa, I and my family are at risk. I am free from any political activity but because of my ethnicity polices are going to arrest me. Therefore, I kindly requesting you to save me and my family from this bad situation in your Embassy or any of your organisations.

    So if I should apply for a Shanghai visa be because I want to settle in Berlin and also I like to dress like a girl and my aim is to be very happy and live very good and working with online marketing jobs
    Because I used to have residential permit from Italy and I was deported
    Though I didn’t know it was deportation because I have lost my late father so I have asked my lawyer in Berlin to go in Nigeria for visit
    Arriving home and reading all my papers I see that a friend of mine was complaining about me that I was asking about her real name and identity be because she told me she was a transexule I really don’t understand
    My documents was because I needed asylum and I really wanted to stay in Europe omg
    So if I have this visa do I have the right to have my residence permit at hand because the Italia police made a denounced of my documents

    Hello, I am an Afghan child. I have been living in Tajikistan for 5 years. The reason I left Afghanistan was because my father was killed because he was a government employee and was always against the Taliban. My father’s name was Qasim. We were brought to Tajikistan. I live here with my two sisters and my mother. I have 5 brothers and 4 sisters. They are strict Muslims. They don’t recognize war and execution anymore, and I married a Tajik woman who had two children and I was raising them. I am a Christian child. I believe in Jesus. My family is Muslim and they found out that I am a Christian child. And they made me aware of this with all the family members and took me out of the house with my wife and children and said that you should be killed and we should send you to Afghanistan and hand them over to the Taliban and I ran away to a hidden place. I am alive and I am left alone and without anyone. I have no one to help me and I chatted with the members of the church and they gave me the email address and I have no one to help me except you. I want you to help me and save me from misfortune. I am left alone, I don’t need your help.I ask you to accept my request, I am in danger
