When you apply for asylum, the Federal Office will verify whether Germany or possibly another European Union member state is responsible for your asylum application. The Federal Office will compare your fingerprints with the European EURODAC database (EURODAC) to see when and where you arrived in the European Union and whether you have already applied for asylum in another country. If you have already registered in another EU member state, the Federal Office will open the Dublin proceedings and make a request to the member state concerned. The Dublin proceedings are to ensure that each asylum application is only processed by one member state.
It is absolutely necessary for you to register in the member state you first enter. Many refugee families are separated on their journey; a family reunion is only possible if you register.
Is Germany responsible for me at all?
Further processing will only continue once it has been established that Germany is responsible for your asylum application.
