The average asylum procedure in Germany lasted 6.6 months in the first half of this year, one month less than in the same period in 2022, according to data from the German Interior Ministry.

It seems that the processing of asylum applications in Germany has become faster.

Based on current European regulations, the asylum procedure must be completed within a period of six months. However, in 2020, during the COVID-19 epidemic, the German asylum agency, BAMF, exceeded this limit with an average delay of more than 8 months.

However, the process has now returned to where it was in 2021, around 198 days, as reported by InfoMigrants.

Government statistics show that the length of time it takes to decide an asylum application depends on the person’s origin. Afghan citizens have to wait an average of more than nine months for a decision, although they eventually receive protection status in about 100% of cases.

Citizens from the following territories are subject to the longest waits when it comes to seeking asylum in Germany:

  • Nigeria (16.2 months)
  • Senegal (12.8 months
  • Iran (10.5)

German authorities are continuously processing large numbers of asylum applications, prompting the country’s leaders to reform the asylum system to help manage the current situation.

Recently, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said his country must begin deporting large numbers of migrants who have no right to stay in Germany.

Furthermore, German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser also revealed plans to facilitate deportation proceedings. Such comments came after more migrants irregularly entered Germany in September than in any other month in the past seven years.

Some 21,000 migrants arrived in Germany irregularly in September, marking the most significant increase since February 2016, when some 25,650 people entered the country.

The Minister of the Interior will present a bill to the cabinet that includes measures to more effectively deport people from Germany.


According to her, the number of facilitated evictions this year increased by 27% compared to last year; However, she emphasized that there is still more work to be done.
