The government of Germany has agreed to new measures to address increased migration, including:
- A modernization effort of the IT systems to expedite asylum application processing, which currently takes 26 months on average.
- An extension of the maximum detention period for migrants from 10 to 28 days.
- Establishing “new migrant partnerships” with the countries of origin.
Germany has seen a significant increase in asylum applications received; 78% more asylum applications were filed so far in 2023 than for the same period in 2022.
