Dear @Sajithasia,

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

I’m afraid that it’s not possible to chose or change the camp based on the fact that procedures may be more smooth or faster in another camp. Moving to another federal state (in your case from NRW to Baden-Württemberg) is even more difficult. The opposite, from my experience even close family members are often struggling to be (re-)transferred to the same accommodation. The so-called “Umverteilung” is only granted in very exceptional cases. My colleague gave some information on a similar question here before. 

To elaborate your individual situation you should get in touch with the social/counseling staff in your camp or in the next counseling office.

I’m sorry that I can not provide a more positive advice - in any case, please don’t hesitate to get back to us with any further questions.

All the best,
