One of the most important tasks of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees is checking asylum applications. Its staff must assess whether an applicant for asylum is likely to be persecuted in his or her country of origin, and if this will threaten his or her life or freedom. This brochure explains the individual aspects of the asylum process and provides statistical data. In addition to presenting responsibilities, it also gives information about the legally prescribed hearings for asylum seekers, the decision-making process, the length of the procedure, the development of the protection quota and the legal consequences of the decision.
