Palestinians from Syria Denied Family Reunification in Germany

Hundreds of Palestinian families from Syria who have sought shelter in Germany have sounded distress signals over delays in the family reunification process, which they said often lasts for over three years.

Hundreds of Palestinian refugees from Syria in Germany have been separated from their families who have remained in Syria or fled to Lebanon, Turkey, or Egypt, where rental fees have reportedly hit $450 per month. The situation is exacerbated by the price leap and the frailty of the refugees’ legal status.

The German Migration Office has attributed the delay in family reunification procedures to difficulties in coping with the simmering pressure exerted on its staff members.

Palestinian refugees say, however, that the delay makes part of a closed-doors immigration policy pursued by the German government to rein in the influx of refugees to the country.

Palestinians from Syria in Germany are categorized as stateless refugees, according to the German law. The Geneva Convention stipulates that Germany grant nationality to those categorized as stateless refugees, in accordance with the German Nationality Law of 2000.
