Here you can ask, answer and find questions surrounding the topic: arriving in Germany


I have had the blue passport for refugees (Reiseausweis) for the last 3 years and when it expired in February 2020, I was required to fill a form regarding Revocation/withdrawal process: "Belehrung über Mitwirkungspflichten im Widerrufs- bzw. Rücknahmeverfahren" and send back to BAMF.

I received the answer from BAMF few days ago but I am unsure if the letter states that I can get blue passport for 3 more years or if it means that I have to go back to Asylum status. Because in the letter, it states that the proceedings are terminated and that the decisions made in the asylum procedure remains. Because I converted from Muslim to Christian and practice Christianity, I am concerned if this means deportation because then I would risk death when I return.

 Below I have written what it was written in the letter.

Widerrrufs-/Rücknahmeverfahren des/der

"Sehr geehrte Frau/sehr geehrter Herr Jodigharah Belagh,

nach eingehender Überprüfung der Sach- und Rechtslage wird das Verfahren eingestellt.

Es bleibt bei der im Asylverfahren getroffenen Entscheidung. Ein gesonderter Bescheid ergeht nicht."

Please let me know what the letter indicates and what I can do further. I would really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.

Yours Sincerely,

Behnam Jodigharah Belagh

Hello @Behnam,

thank you for reaching out to the Wefugees communitiy and for sharing your question with us.

According to §73 Asylum act the BAMF can recheck their protection decision and re-examine whether the protection status is still valid. In the letter you received the BAMF stated affirmatively that the decision to grant you a refugee status is stil in effect and that the revocation procedure is terminated.

In order to renew your previous residence permit you have to address to your local immigration office, which is responsible for issuing it (not the BAMF).

I hope my answers were helpful and I’ll be very pleased if you contact me again with further questions.
