Here you can ask, answer and find questions surrounding the topic: arriving in Germany
Hello, my fiance is from Yemen, he was granted with refugee status in Malaysia, however since Malaysia is not a member of UNHCR, he faced many limitations and went to Germany , he has applied for asylum in Germany and just finished his first interview last 2 weeks. May I know if he would be able to get asylum in Germany because he couldn't go back to Yemen due to the war and he is also unable to return to Malaysia because he overstayed his visa (prior his application for refugee). May I know how long will it normally takes to hear the result and to finish the whole process?  thank you so much :)

Dear @Arie,

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us again.

However, I am afraid that I am not able to provide much more information than in your last question:

My fiance (from Yemen) applied for asylum in Germany - is he getting asylum?

Every asylum application is assessed individually by the BAMF and it would not be reliable or serious to make any predictions here. Something similar applies to any prediction regarding the duration of the whole asylum procedure. This is depending on many factors as country of origin or the respective conditions within the BAMF office responsible for your case. I read on this website though, that in 2020 the asylum process took 8,3 months in average. But this can vary significantly.

I am sorry that I can not give more specific details, but I will cross my fingers for a good outcome!

In any case, please don't hesitate to get back to us with any further questions.

All the best,
