Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany (Grundgesetz)

The Basic Law (Grundgesetz) is the foundation of Germany's democratic order. It gives information about the political system and is a basis for human rights, human dignity and social responsibility in Germany. The first 19 articles of the Basic Law are called fundamental rights that bind all of the states' institutions.

Those fundamental rights state that every person is equal, meaning that no matter your sex, your origin, your religion or your political views, you will be granted the same rights. The freedom of faith ensures that you can practice and live by any religion.

One of these fundamental rights is the right to asylum: Article 16a (1) Persons persecuted on political grounds shall have the right of asylum. There may be an exception to this right if you enter Germany from a different EU state, you come from a country that Germany lists as "safe" or when the need for protection is not evident.

The Basic Law is available for download:
