Hi @Jassica

As I understand it, the Dublin procedure has ended for you and Germany is now responsible for processing your asylum case. You are now in possession of a paper called ‘Aufenthaltsgestattung’ which is renewed every 6 months.

If the jobs that you and your husband are offered will provide enough income to cover your living costs, then you can move. When people are entitled to money from Sozialamt, then they are obliged to live in the area they were assigned to (this should be written in your paper Aufenthaltsgestattung). If you can support yourself by working, then you do not have to stay there.

You need to make a written application to your local immigration authority (Ausländerbehörde). The application is called ‘Antrag auf Aufhebung der Wohnsitzauflage’. An example of the application form for this can be found here:


Send copies of the job offers along with the application.
