What rights and obligations do asylum applicants have during the asylum procedure? What documents do they need to present? What is the Dublin check? What do I need to consider if I change address?
The brochure serves to accompany the film of the same name entitled “Information on the Asylum Procedure. Your rights and obligations”, and also contains a personal “checklist” for applicants.
The list covers all five stages of the procedure, and provides an overview and a personal orientation.
This information guide is sent to asylum applicants in the relevant language version along with the invitation letter to attend their interview appointment. It provides important information on the interview itself, as well as regarding organisational matters that need to be addressed in the run-up to the interview and on the interview day itself.
The application is asylum applicants’ first appointment at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. This document informs them about the stages of the asylum application and about what documents they should take with them to this appointment at the Federal Office.
