This guide will provide you with information about the country you now find yourself in. It has been designed in response to common questions asked by refugees. Available languages: German, English, français, العربية, kurdî, türkçe, پښتو, درى‎, فارسی, اردو, ትግርኛ, русский.

We are pleased to recommend you lawyers. It is important that you save about 20 Euros each month for upcoming legal services. Lawyers are very expensive and will cost you you between € 400,00 and € 700,00. You won´t receive legal advice without money!

AWO Kreisverband Stuttgart e.V., Olgastr. 63, 70182 Stuttgart, Phone 0711/2106117, e-mail: anerkennung@awo-stuttgart.de.

Cost: aprox. € 400,00 plus fees for certified copies and translation fees.

Please consider that those refugees who are acknowledged to stay might get partly compensated by the Jobcenter. Refugees who are still in process must cover the cost on their own.

Please just contact one of our volunteers who are more than happy to help you.

Medical care  for refugees is guaranteed by law (Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz (AsylbLG)). You receive a special document from the social worker, with which you can go to a doctor. Don´t forget to hand this document to the doctor.

In German you can ONLY go to the hospital with a confinement authorized by your general practitioner or if it is an emergency. Otherwise you will have to cover the cost on your own!

The use of the public transportation system without a valid ticket is strictly forbidden. They will fine you with 60 Euros! If you get caught three times, you will receive a penal charge, which will have further consequences for you.
