Here you can ask, answer and find questions surrounding the topic: arriving in Germany
Hi everyone. I am an asylum seeker from Asia. I've been in Italy for 1 year  already processing my asylum, supposedly my result was scheduled to be released last October 5, but the commission told me that they want to interview me again and they are moving my result June next year.

I am very patient with the asylum since I really need a protection, yet as an artist, I cannot really move here in Italy. Now, my girlfriend told me that we will just get married so that I can get papers through marriage.

My question is:

1. do I need to withdraw my aslyum application before marriage or after marriage?

2. will I be able to get my travel papers after the marriage or it will be hindered since I had records of applying an asylum?

I will really appreciate your help and answers.

Dear @AndreiRublev, thank you for sharing your sitaution with us in the community. As for your questions: 1. As you wont have alegal status if you withdraw your asylum case, it is best to do it once you are married, then anyways your status will change through marriage. 2. No legally it wont make a difference, however Italy has a more rigid policy towards asylum seekers so they might make it harder for you, therefore it would be good to get the assistance of an attorney/lawyer. I hope this could help you, if you need further assistance please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Best regards, Nilab

Dear Nilab, thank you very much.

I have another question. For example, I will cross to germany and get the chance to go to Berlin, since I am a filmmaker with a lot of records with filmfestivals and publications, will there be a chance that I can get the freelance visa if ever a production house will or an artist residency will hire me for 1 year even I applied my asylum in Italy?
