Hello @saidh

Welcome to our community!

As far as I can see you have to get in contact with the Bundespolizei (police) and tell them that you want to apply for asylum. They will escort you to a camp inside the transit area. You'll have to wait there for your case to be decided.

Applying for asylum in an airport is a special case. If you have further questions about the procedure, feel free to ask.

Best regards,
Thorgen

thanks for your answer , how long it takes to leave the transit area and cross the border to inside germany ?
The decision on your case must happen within two days. But under some special conditions it can take up to 19 days until you can enter Germany. Check out these information given on the website of Federal Office for Migration and Refugees about the airport procedure: http://www.bamf.de/EN/Fluechtlingsschutz/Sonderverfahren/FlughafenVerfahren/flughafenverfahren-node.html
