I am an ex Muslim woman from Egypt and I want seek asylum in Germany based on apostasy and related domestic violence , but I dont know what are the documents required to prove that I need protection , since I can't report any threats to the authorities in my country ( cant ask for protection because I left Islam , I could go to jail or worse ) , I have some medical records ( physical injuries ) and prescriptions to prove that I am taking medication for severe depression, in addition to some reports (official), news articles and quotes to show that ex Muslims and Christians or atheists face persecution in Egypt , would that be enough or what shall I do ? Any help would be appreciated

In my view its going to be a difficult asylum proceedings for you as apostasy cases from Egypt are not automatically accepted as far as I know. So you have to be very convincing (including the reasons why you left Islam) and prepare the hearing well. Any witnesses who can support your case are of course helpful.

I would advise you to prepare the hearing with an asylum  lawyer.

Dear Marcel thanks alot for your reply , but I think it would be difficult to find a witness who could support my case in Germany since all the problems that I have faced were in Egypt , that is really depressing ,such cases are really hard to prove , as If I have to go to jail first or get myself killed to convince the authorities that I need protection
