My asylum is accepted and i'm given refugee status in Germany. I got my home country passport back from auslanderbehorde during the proceeding. Now I will get blue passport. My concern is can I use my home country passport to travel to other countries as I can get e-visas on home country passport while on refugee passport you have to get visa visiting the embassy which is a lengthy and hectic process. and also refugee passport is not accepted in many countries like UAE, Qatar, Bahrain. I will never visit my home country. but I hold visas to different countries on my passport and I don't want to lose them. I'm a keen traveler and I travel alot to different countries other than EU for tourism purpose. and can I renew my passport after its expiry as I don't need to visit embassy of my home country and I can get it renewed through online application and delivered to my residential address.

Dear @Xees3013,

thank you for sharing your question with the Wefugees Community.

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to renew or to get your national passport with your refugee protection. Not only you are not allowed to visit your country's embassy but also you are not allowed to get the protection of your country of origin. So, even when you apply online for your national passport and get it or renew it, it means that you get the protection of your country of origin. That is why, you lose your protection in Germany.

For More information, you can go to the following link and read Section 72 Subsection 1 of the Asylum Act of Germany: https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/englisch_asylvfg/englisch_asylvfg.html

In addition, for more information about a blue passport and to which countries you are allowed to travel to, you can go to the following link and watch the video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0VbbgfFYfw
