GERMANY'S FUTURE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO LIMIT NUMBER OF REFUGEES ARRIVING TO GERMANY

In Germany the conservatives of Angela Merkel and the socialdemocrats had in the last week a discussion if it would make sense to form a government together. They agreed to start official coalition negotiations in the next weeks. That means that they are still quite far away from really forming a government and it is still unclear if this will really happen. But in case they will govern the country, they plan to limit the number of refugees arriving to Germany to a maximum 220,000 a year. Also they want to limit the number of family reunification over the embassy from people that have subsidiary protection (a residence permit for one year) to 1,000 a month. Please keep in mind that this is not relevant for refugees in Germany that have a three years residence permit (refugee status) and it also not so relevant if you have family members in Greece. Because for asylum seekers in Greece with family members in Germany there is the possibility to make family reunification through the Greek Asylum Service. For the difference between this two procedures, have a look here: http://bit.ly/2DfbE5T
Also remember what we said before, that this so far are only plans that will be carried out, in case the parties will form the government together. The Mobile Info Team will keep you updated about this topic.
