What question do you have about refugees?

questions and answers

Duldung is granted to anyone who has to leave Germany but cannot be deported for the time being (there is an obstacle to deportation). Reasons for such a "temporary suspension of deportation" are, for example, if there is no passport or passport replacement paper or the person is not fit to fly. With the acquiescence, the stay becomes unlawful, but there is no criminal liability for illegal stay. According to statistics from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, as of January 31, 2016, almost 160,000 people had a Duldung. Most of them have lived in Germany for many years.
Tolerated people without a permitted or permitted previous residence will not receive a work permit in the first three months. Approval must be applied for at the immigration authorities. In addition, a so-called "priority check" is carried out in the first 15 months. This means that permission to take up a certain job is only permitted if no preferred employee is possible for the same job, such as Germans, EU citizens or recognized refugees or other persons with a right of residence and access to employment. After an uninterrupted four-year permitted, tolerated or permitted stay, tolerated persons may pursue any employment. Permission from the immigration authorities to carry out in-company vocational training, some highly qualified jobs and certain internships can be granted beforehand in a simplified procedure.

Generally, tolerated persons are not allowed to work who have gone to the federal territory in order to obtain benefits under the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act, who have to represent the obstacle to deportation themselves, or citizens of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ghana, Kosovo, Macedonia - the former Yugoslav Republic, Montenegro, Senegal or Serbia (safe countries of origin) and their asylum applications submitted after August 31, 2015 have been rejected.
