Termination of residence

When an asylum is turned down, a distinction is made between two types of rejection: outright rejection and rejection as "manifestly unfounded".

If the rejection is outright, the individual in question is set a deadline of 30 days in which to leave the country, whereas if the asylum application is rejected as "manifestly unfounded", the deadline period for leaving is only one week.

The respective immigration authorities are responsible for returns. The latter can however temporarily suspend a return and issue a temporary suspension of deportation (Duldung) or a time-limited residence permit if there are obstacles to the return which the Federal Office was not able to take into account in its decision.
