Hello, me and my wife have been victims of intense political persecution in our country. We dont need a visa to enter europe as a tourist. Is it possible to enter at a different country, lets say France, as a tourist, and then go to Germany and ask for political asylum? Does tha fall into the "Dublin" situation? I would prefer to ask  for asylum in Germany because we both have german ancestors. Will the fact of entering as a tourist hurt my case of political asylum? I would rather not ask for asylum at the airport because of fear of being sent back or having to face days in a holding facility.

Thanks, but i wonder if my case would be different...i would enter european union via Italy or other country as a tourist, and then move to germany and ask for asylum. I would not ask for asylum at the first country...is this possible? thanks.
Dear @Muller2018, yes it is possible, as you can decide where to apply for asylum. But if you apply in Germany but entered Europe with an Italian Visa the Dublin Regulations will apply: And then they will send you back to Italy to process your asylum claim. https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2013:180:0031:0059:EN:PDF I hope we could assist you, if need further assistance please use the community.
