Federal State Reception Centers (LAE)

If you have come to Germany seeking protection and wishing to apply for asylum, public authorities will allocate you by law and quota system to a temporary residence in a federal state, the so-called federal state reception center (LAE).

Your initial reception (registration) as asylum seeking person takes place in the LAE. If Saxony-Anhalt does not handle applications for asylum from your country of origin, staff members will transfer your application to the authorized federal state.

In the LAE you receive accommodation, food and other necessary requirements for living. You will be accommodated here until you are allocated to a municipality and transfer.
