Hello @KayKay

Thank you for asking your question here on Wefugees and welcome to our community!

I’m afraid your German friend has only limited options what he can do for you after you registered as an asylum seeker - unless you are underage or related to each other. For example he can’t give you a work permit because he doesn’t have the authority to decide about that. But he can employ you as a regular employee after the 3-month waiting period is over and if Ausländerbehörde (aliens department) and Bundesagentur für Arbeit (German Federal Labour Market Authority) give their consent.

But of course it’s always helpful to have native friends that can support you and help you to integrate faster. For example it will be easier for you to learn German if you have a native speaker that you can talk to.

Apart from that you have to go through the asylum procedure the same way as anyone else - it’s a public and not a private affair. The procedure includes an interview which will build ground for the decision about your case by BAMF.

Best regards,
