About 11.500 people were expelled from Germany in the first half of the 2019, recording a slight increase compared to the first six months of the 2018.
This was the answer that the German government gave to the request of the 'Die Linke' party to expel from the country all the colors whose asylum request had been rejected; trend that will continue also in September.
The main countries in which the "expelled" are sent - mainly of Albanian, Serbian, Russian, Georgian and Nigerian nationality - are Albania, Italy, Serbia, Georgia and France. In total this year 6905 is the people expelled or refused the asylum request in Germany.
Furthermore, as part of the Dublin Convention, Germany has sent 4215 asylum seekers back to other EU countries this year, where they first touched the European continent.
In Germany there are more than 246.000 people who must be expelled from the country, 191.117 of which have the status of "duldung" or that for legal or similar reasons cannot be expelled. On the other hand, 6786 people have left Germany of their own volition by taking advantage of assistance for the return.
Who is expelled from Germany?
Foreign citizens who want to live in Germany need a residence permit; in this sense, only temporary permits are issued to refugees and asylum seekers, waiting for their asylum application to be analyzed and processed.
In the event of a rejected asylum request, foreign citizens no longer have the right to stay in Germany and must therefore leave the country within a specified time limit (no more than six months). Once the expiration date has passed, citizens are compulsorily expelled from Germany to their country of origin.
Who decides who is expelled?
Two authorities have the power to issue a deportation decision from Germany: the Foreigners' Office, which is part of the federal government, and the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, the BAMF.
In most cases the office of foreigners is responsible for issuing and executing expulsion orders, while the process of managing the asylum application is managed by the BAMF.
