I am an asylum seeker(from Nigeria) currently living in Germany, me and my girlfriend wants to get married in Poland in 3months.
Please, would I need to have a resident permit or visa to be able to get married in Poland? Because I do not have and I don’t want to worsen my problem.
Thanks for your help.
As an asylum seeker you are not allowed to leave Germany for the duration of your asylum procedure. If you get a residence permit for Germany you will also receive a blue passport that allows you to travel visa-free to a lot of European countries including Poland.
So, as a refugee (not an asylum seeker) you can marry in Poland if you fulfil all the requirements. It can be that you need a special visa to enter Poland if you want to marry there. I don’t know about the exact ruling, so probably it’s best that you get in touch with Polish authorities once you are allowed to travel.
Yes I am. My social told me I don’t need resident/visa to get married in Poland but he’s not sure. He also said me going to Poland is at my own risk.
So I’m thinking to go to Poland for the wedding that’s when I’m sure I don’t need resident permit/visa to get married in Poland . Or I begin a process of having the wedding done here in Germany just that I am afraid to give in my passport in Germany as that may effect my Deportation as my asylum claim as not been decided yet .
Yea. My girlfriend called the registry office she said they said I only need passport, birth certificate and letter of impediment that I’ve never been married. Thanks for your time and advice Thor.
Hello Thor. Sorry to border you again.
Please as an asylum seeker in Germany, can I and my girlfriend apply for any form of visa or travel card for me to be able to enter Poland for the purpose of getting married ?? Thank you.
