  • Professional opinions and statements from experts, universities, human rights organisations,

  • Works authored by the Federal Office and foreign partner authorities as well as the European Union,

  • Field reports and official information from the German Foreign Office

  • Images and templates (for example, maps, ID, arrest warrants)

All information – unattributed by name, if necessary - is fully entered in the MILo data bank Many documents are also accessible using the "guest access" function in MILo.

If you are looking for a court decision on the topics of asylum, residence and migration, then the jurisdictional documentation provides current court decisions and makes them available to the public. This documentation is a collection of court decisions on asylum, residence and migration. The focus of the documentation lies on decisions of the German administrative courts on asylum and refugee law.
Court decisions to be documented are made anonymous, supplemented with an abstract and fully entered in the MILo (Migration Info Logistics) database. Interested persons can use this Federal Office service via the guest access button in MILo.

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.
