Expert forum gives impetus to BAMF's work

The Federal Office optimises its information management with consultant support

The Expert Forum advises the Information Centre on Asylum and Migration with the goal of optimising the Federal Office's information management. The forum consists of people who have expert knowledge of migration and asylum issues on account of their belonging to certain institutions, organisations and social groups. These consultants can give the Federal Office additional stimulus in its work. With help of the Expert Forum, the Federal Office intends to make the bases for its decision-making more transparent to the general public and ensure that the evidence is documented objectively. In addition the quality of the documentation should be effectively assured and its acceptance by the public increased.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
