What is requested with the asylum application?

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.
