Once you file an asylum application, you apply for protection in Germany. First of all, BAMF proves whether or not Germany is responsible for your application. If
- you have already applied for asylum in another European country,
- you have been granted asylum in another European country or
- your asylum application has been rejected in another European country,
Germany is not officially responsible for you. In this case, you will receive a letter from the Federal Office, in which you will be asked to travel to the country responsible for you.
