FAQs on Migration

  • If I am caught working illegally in Germany, will I get papers automatically ?

    This is nonsense! The German labour market is highly restricted. Tough laws and tough sanctions apply. If the German police discovers you working illegally, you will find yourself in trouble. Depending on your residence permit, this could mean deportation to your home country.

  • I work for a migration support organisation and wish to download legislation and reports relating to immigration to the EU. How can the EU Immigration Portal help me?

    The EU Immigration Portal is not a documentation centre. It gives you basic information on European and national immigration policies and law. However it also provides a Directory and links to further information available on national official websites, which might provide you with the documentation you need.

  • I live in an EU country where I have the status of refugee. Can I find information relevant to my status on the EU Immigration Portal?

    No. The EU Immigration Portal does not provide information on the specific rules that apply to non-EU citizens who have the status of refugee in an EU country.

  • Does the EU Immigration Portal provide users with a forum for discussion?

    No. The EU Immigration Portal provides basic information on European and national immigration policies and law to non-EU citizens, migrant intermediary organisations, immigration law practitioners, officials, employers, and to the public at large. It does not provide any facility for interaction between users and is not a forum for discussion.
