Recognition of politically persecuted persons as persons entitled to asylum or as refugees under the Geneva Convention on Refugees

In Germany, politically persecuted persons are entitled to recognition as a person entitled to asylum under Article 16a of the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany (GG) or as refugees within the meaning of the Convention on the Status of Refugees of 28.06.1951 (Geneva Convention on Refugees).


Anyone wishing to claim the right to recognition must undergo a recognition procedure.

Process flow

If an asylum seeker/asylum seeker registers with the border authority, it shall forward it to the nearest first reception centre, the establishment and maintenance of which is the responsibility of the country concerned. However, this does not apply if he has the conditions for refusing entry, for example because he is entering from a safe third country. If a foreigner only reveals himself/herself as an asylum-seeker in Germany, he or she will also be referred to the nearest first reception facility.

Asylum seekers then apply for asylum. This compares data with the Central Register of Foreigners (AZR) and grants a residence permit, which grants a provisional right of residence for the implementation of the asylum procedure in the Federal Republic.

Subsequently, the statutory, non-public consultation of the asylum seeker in accordance with Section 25 of the Asylum Procedures Act (AsylVfG) is carried out by staff of the competent authority. To do so, the asylum seeker must appear in person and explain the reasons for persecution. A decision on the application for asylum will then be taken. The individual fate is fundamentally decisive.

The decision on the application for asylum shall be taken in writing and shall contain a statement of reasons. It shall be served on the asylum seeker with a redress notice.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the branch office of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), which are located in the immediate vicinity of your initial reception facility.

Lower Saxony maintains an initial reception facility - the State Reception Authority of Lower Saxony - with locations in Braunschweig, Bramsche, Friedland, Oldenburg and Osnabrück.
