True or false?
Will Germany grant asylum to 25 percent of all refugees coming to Europe via Italy?
Germany and a number of EU member states have agreed on a temporary emergency mechanism for rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea. However, this does not foresee fixed quotas for refugees that Germany would take from Italy.
Is it possible to buy a visa for the Federal Republic of Germany?
No. Visas cannot be sold or given to someone else. A visa for entering Germany is personalised and issued only to a specific individual. Only embassies and consulates general of the Federal Republic of Germany can issue visas.
Do all refugees in Germany have the right to be reunited with their family members?
No. While the desire to be with your own family is understandable, this is not possible in every case. Whether refugees and migrants in Germany are entitled to be reunited with their family members in Germany is dependent on many different factors.
