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.

If the individual does not leave the country voluntarily within the set time limit, departure is coercively enforced by the responsible immigration authority by means of deportation. If there are impediments to deportation which are not to be taken into account in the decision on the asylum application, the deportation is suspended and temporary suspension of deportation (Duldung) is granted. If the individual in question is not responsible for the impediment to deportation, the granting of a residence permit may be considered.
