Asylum procedure and residence permit / Bremerhaven Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

For the duration of the asylum procedure, the asylum seeker receives a residence permit. This is issued for the first time by the BAMF with a validity of three months and is continuously extended by the Citizens' and Public Order Office until the asylum procedure is concluded. (The residence permit does not fulfil the legal character of a residence title. It only certifies a temporary stay during the asylum procedure). The residence permit contains conditions for taking up residence and for permission to work and study, these are binding. Travel abroad is not possible with the residence permit.

If your asylum application has been recognised by the BAMF, the residence permits will be issued by the Bürger- und Ordnungsamt.
