Hello @Ed - nice to hear from you again! Could you please specify what type of documents we are talking about? Best regards, Thorgen
I am talking about assylum seekers.  And It's about resident permit. If some one is suffering from chronic sickness. Does it help the person to obtain a refugee status in Deutschland.
But why will they give duldung after submitting the medical report? I think duldung is a bad thing..a duldung will not allow u to work and is it removable?
Being granted refugee status or asylum has nothing to do with your physical well-being, only whether it is recognized that you are subject to danger for your health or life in your home country. Duldung can be granted if your request for asylum was denied, but for certain reasons (e.g chronic disease) you cannot be deported. It is in the nature of Duldung that it can be removed if the condition would change. But it is possible to get permission to work under Duldung, you have to ask Ausländerbehörde for permission.

Hi @Ed

Thank you for clarifying the issue.

Have you read this thread about asylum based on medical reasons? https://www.wefugees.de/k/questions/1974

Here is a short summary: The medical state on its own is not sufficient to get asylum based on it. However, it is possible to get a medical report that can be handed in at Ausländerbehörde. They might take it into account and give you a Duldung. But you will have to give convincing reasons why it's necessary for you to be treated in Germany and not in your home country. I'm not sure if this works with diabetes though.

On the other hand, of course you can go through a regular asylum procedure in order to obtain asylum/residence permit.

Best regards,
Thorgen
