Asylum is a right that is protected by the Constitution in Germany. People who are displaced from other parts of the world, fleeing from violence, war and terror, are to find protection in our country. This page provides information on the stages of the asylum procedure, the right to asylum and the various forms of protection, as well as on the European context.
The examination of asylum applications is one of the most important tasks performed by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. This brochure will provide you with information on individual aspects of the asylum procedure.
