Am Ela am from Sudan and a Bachelor student in Hungary I want to go and seek for asylum in Belgium (as I heard it’s the only place for me as a Sudanese ) .

I can’t go back to Sudan because of what is happening right now .

How I came to hungary ?

I actually born and raised in UAE and this is how I was able to come to hungary(4 years ago)  but now I lost my resident in UAE already (and they won’t probably allow me anyway since am from Sudan a country that has war in general they Tends to avoid them )  

Now my family is in Sudan and the whole Sudan massacre started while I was in my university.

Right now am in a situation where I can’t go back home and my Hungarian resident permit will  finish at the end of this month (last year student).

So I really don’t know what to do I barely have enough money where my dad was able to send me some form time to time but now everything is blocked and I have until the end of this month and I have to leave hungary.

Am really confused and lost.

Sorry if this was to long and complicated but I tried my best

Dear Ela,

I am really sorry to hear that you are in such a difficult situation. 

As your case is very urgent and complicated, I would highly recommend you to **** for professional legal advice. I found this organisation, which has offices in various cities in Hungary. Maybe you can contact them https://menedek.hu/en/activities/social-work.  

In the EU, the The Dublin III-regulation is determining the state which is responsible for an individual asylum procedure. As Hungary granted you a student visa, Hungary will unfortunately most probably also be responsible for processing your asylum application. In any case, as the refugee law in general is indeed complex and sometimes non-transparent, I hope you find the opportunity to discuss everything with a counselor or a lawyer.

Good luck with everything and please get back to us, if we can support you somehow.

Best wishes,

Thanks Meike for your help really appreciate it.
I did indeed try to talk to them but non of the numbers provided  helped me I even found a number for a camp in Hungary tried to contact them to ask them how I can seek asylum non helped  me and the women in the phone shout at my face before she hang up

Finally I tried calling Budapest immigration office and they said sorry we can’t help you .

I found many numbers for many different lawyers in Debrecen/Budapest tried to book an appointment with one or at least tell me how to seek asylum but many where running away (either saying that I can’t help you , some said am eating right now find a different lawyer, one where shouting in my face how am worthless  ..etc etc)

They where interested at the beginning when I told them that I need an advice but I soon as I said asylum seeking they immediately hang up.

I looked online and found this :


quote :

“This means that anyone — from lawyers to community volunteers — who helps asylum-seekers with filling out forms, legal advice or information on the asylum process will be penalized.”

And then I understood why no one was willing to give me any advice

In the same time I found a number online for a free lawyer and happened that he is from Belgium and he told me you can come if you have no other options .

And that what I did ...

I really hate myself right now ....

Am thinking honestly about committing suicide ....

I don’t know why my life ended up like this..

Anyway Thankx for the nice words Meike

Dear @Ela

I am so sorry to hear. Unfortunately Hungary is really really bad in terms of dealing with refugees and granting them their rights. But please, I want to encourage you not to give up! I understand that you do not have much hope but please let me make some more research to find useful addresses and contacts in Hungary! Please check already this website: ****://***.refugeelegalaidinformation.org/hungary-pro-bono-directory. Maybe there are some helpful information...

 I will get back to you very soon! 

Stay strong and take care, 


Dear @Ela

Please, were you able to get in contact with any organisation or supporting people?

I hope you are doing better,
