Unfortunately, there are currently no special admission programmes for refugees in Germany or other European countries.

In the case of close family members living in Canada, the USA or Australia with a permanent resident status, the possibility of family reunification may exist.

Please note that applying for resettlement or immigration to another country does not have a suspensive effect on deadlines in Germany, for example, on the ordered departure from Germany to your country of origin. In any event, you should consult a refugee counselling service to obtain full information.
