Albert Sommerfeld: When a country is responsible for processing an asylum application, its obligation is extinguished if the person has left the territory of the Member States for a period of at least three months. The applicant must prove that he has left the territory of the Member States. In this case, the Dublin rules apply again, so the result depends on the situation after the person`s second entry. The minister of the interior said that a real refugee would seek asylum in the first country sure he or she would reach. He therefore deregates or, at the very least, asserts that those who travel from France to Britain are not genuine refugees. However, there is UK national legislation that allows the government to refuse to consider a refugee claim if it is considered that the person could have applied for asylum elsewhere. Refugees who enter the UK after their passage to another EU country may, under certain circumstances, be returned to the first EU country they entered, in accordance with EU legislation known as the Dublin Regulation. Any individual asylum application made on EU territory must be reviewed – each EU country must be able to determine whether and when it is responsible for processing an asylum application. The aim of the Dublin Regulation is to ensure rapid access to asylum procedures and the consideration of a substantive application by a single clearly defined Member State. In June, travel and border restrictions were lifted across Europe, allowing countries to resume transfers from Dublin. On 24 June 2020, the European Asylum Support Office told InfoMigrants: « Member States have stated that they plan to gradually organise more transfers from Dublin in the coming weeks, taking into account public health and safety measures. » In the face of an increasing number of refugee populations, conditions in poor countries, which take in far more refugees than Europe hosts, are often insufficient, desperate and dangerous. Some feel that they have no choice but to continue. For them, human smugglers and dangerous boat trips are the only choice they have left.
I arrived in a European country, then I moved to another country and applied for asylum. Will my asylum case be accepted? If not, what am I going to do next? To avoid abuse, EU law, the Dublin Regulation, requires asylum seekers to have registered their asylum applications in the first host country and that the decision of the first EU country in which they apply is the final decision in all EU countries. However, some asylum seekers strongly oppose fingerprinting and registration in countries that are not considered asylum seekers, as they often wish to apply for asylum in Germany and Sweden, where benefits are more generous.  Neither the 1951 Refugee Convention nor EU legislation requires a refugee to be obliged to seek asylum in one country and not in another. There is no rule requiring refugees to assert their rights in the first safe country they arrive in. States Parties do not impose sanctions because of their illegal entry or presence against refugees who, directly from a territory where their life or freedom under Article 1 has been threatened, enter or reside in their territory without authorization, provided they present themselves to the authorities without delay and prove that they have a valid reason for entry or illegal presence.
