You can apply for asylum seeker status in a country only if you are physically in this country.

For your application to receive a favorable outcome, you will be asked to document that your life or freedom is seriously threatened in Turkey. You will need to show why you would be personally targeted by repression or worse.

Thank you for your reply. My question was that I am staying in the US now and will go to the one of the Scandinavian countries to apply as asylum seeker there! Am I eligible for it since I will be coming from the one of safest country? And I got charged for being as a Fethullah Gulen Follower.

The government lunched the administrative and criminal investigation for Fethullah Gulen followers as labeling it "FETO" terrorist organization. I am wondering if you are familiar this issue?
