Dear @Marviswhite,

Thank your for reaching out to us again. I can see that you have asked a similar question already in September: 

Can I marry in Denmark as an asylum seeker?

The answer that was given to you then still applies to you, if you haven't been granted a protection status yet. 

As far as I understand it, the Fictional Certificate that you are talking about only applies if the following prerequisites are fulfilled:

"At the time of submitting the application, the male or female applicant must either

  • be in possession of a valid residence permit (temporary residence permit or national visa for long-term durations - Category D - ) or
  • be lawfully entitled to residence without a visa in the territory of the Federal Republic, because he or she is thus authorised by virtue of his/her nationality."
  • Application for Issuance of a Residence Permit 

    A fictional certificate will be issued only when an application has been submitted for the issue or renewal of a residence permit and at the time of presentation no decision can be made regarding the application. Therefore, the prior submission of an application for a residence permit is necessary so that a fictional certificate may be issued.

  • Main residence in Berlin 
  • A personal interview is required "


However, there is an option to get married with your girlfriend in Germany - she can easily travel here, as she is a Dutch citizen. 

Have a look at the Wefugees Blog article about "How to Marry in Germany:

I hope I could help. Feel free to reach out to us again if you need any further assistance!

All the best,
