Hello. If i make a second asylum request in Belgium, for the same reasons but eith new evidences, and it is accepted, after I finish all the interviews, is it possible that the Belgium authorities ask for my file in the county where i made the first asylum application???

Dear @DD

I can see that it's a very tricky situation you are in, so thank you for getting in touch with us again. 

Just so I could understand a bit more about your case, I've read through the questions you have asked a year ago. What it looks like to me is that you are first of all asking if you can apply for asylum again in a different EU-country - Belgium, with new evidence, as you've stated. Second of all, if the Belgian authorities can view your first application made in Switzerland. 

If you follow this link here, a similar question has been asked before and answered by one of our legal advice experts: https://***.wefugees.de/102057/claim-asylum-for-second-time-in-eu?show=102057#q102057 

There is another answer that can help you here, also regarding Belgium's proceedings with second asylum applications: https://***.wefugees.de/101918/is-it-possible-to-apply-for-asylum-a-second-time 

Please feel free to reach out to us again if you still have questions, I really hope the answers provided in the threads I'm sending you help! 

All the best,

Thank you very much for your feedback, but to tell the truth i did not get any answer from what I read. My question is simple. While having a second asylum process ongoing, can this country ask for the file to the first country that took before a negative decision?? Pls if you have any information about it possibly let me know.
Dear @DD, thanks for letting me know and I'm sorry your question hasn't been answered! I will link our asylum law expert @Nilab here, she will get back to you shortly with more information. Best, Isa
Dear @DD, I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Yes they can ask for the file nad they do so, and if you tell different facts/stories they will confront you with them. So make sure you know what the case was in the first country and why you could rejected. I hope this answers now your question. Best regards, Nilab
