Important interview for Refugees

The personal interview is the applicant’s most important appointment within his/her asylum procedure. Advice is therefore available from organisations providing aid when it comes to preparing for the interview. It is the “decision-makers” who are responsible for holding the interviews at the Federal Office of Migration and Refugees (BAMF). They invite applicants to attend this appointment, where an interpreter will also be on hand. Applicants absolutely must attend this appointment, or they must state in good time and in writing why they are unable to attend (for instance for health-related reasons). If they do not do so, their asylum application can be turned down or the proceedings discontinued.

Medical Guide for Refugees

Health care in Germany is based on medical insurance. When you seek asylum in Germany, you do not have medical insurance at first. Government agencies therefore ensure your health care. These include, for example, the social services department (Sozialamt) or the public health service (Gesundheitsamt). Health care includes treatment by a doctor or dentist as well as any necessary vaccinations and medically indicated preventive examinations.
