Turkey Sees Record-Breaking Asylum Applications in Germany

İstanbul City View

In a startling revelation, Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has reported a staggering 203% surge in asylum applications from Turkish citizens, totaling over 23,000 applications this year alone. This places Turkey as the second-highest country of origin for asylum seekers in Germany, trailing only behind Syrian citizens, who filed a total of 63,000 asylum applications during the same period.

The influx of asylum applications has triggered heightened scrutiny from the European Union (EU), leading to increased pressure on Schengen visa applicants to the EU. Recent statistics from several EU embassies reveal a significant spike in refusal rates for Schengen visa requests from Turkish citizens, reaching as high as 70% in 2023.

Amidst this challenging landscape, the Martim group, a renowned entity with 13 years of expertise in facilitating legal immigration services, is advising Turkish citizens to explore lawful alternatives rather than resorting to the asylum route. The company emphasizes that seeking asylum in the EU can prove to be a costly and time-consuming process, often resulting in complications and delays.

Martim, specializing in providing services to non-EU nationalities for obtaining EU residency and citizenship, underscores the importance of adhering to legal immigration procedures. The company's spokesperson highlighted that legal immigration offers a more reliable, efficient, and secure pathway for individuals seeking to establish residency or gain citizenship within the European Union.

In light of the current situation, Martim urges Turkish citizens to opt for legal immigration services that comply with EU regulations and ensure a smoother and more straightforward process. The company reaffirms its commitment to guiding individuals through the intricacies of lawful immigration, promoting a secure and legitimate approach for those aspiring to reside in the European Union.
