Dear @Alonso

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for your question. 

It is not easy to get the permission to move to another region during the asylum procedure. You would need to make an “Umverteilungsantrag” at the local immigration office (Ausländerbehörde) as far as I know. I assume that only a good job, an “Ausbildung” or studies, for instance, might be a strong enough reason to get a permission to move. 

Would you agree dear @mbeon-Ruth

All the best,

Hi @Alonso,

I agree with @Meike, that you need strong arguments if you want to move to another state while you're still in the asylum process. Job, Ausbildung or family reunion (to spouse or child) are those reasons. You apply at the authority of the state, you want to move to. For Niedersachsen it's the LAB (Landesaufnahmebehörde Niedersachsen).

If you need help with the application process, I recommend you make an appointment with a local refugee advisor.
