My friend submitted an Application for asylum in Greece 5 years

Customer Question

My friend submitted an Application for asylum in Greece 5 years ago and was granted a "pink card" He is of Nigerian nationality. No final ruling as to the outcome of his asylum application yet. He has during this time completed a university education for a bachelor degree, graduating this year. He is now hoping to go and do a masters degree in Germany. With his asylum process in Greece still pending and all attemps to find out the status or get a ruling has been futile, the question is: Is it possible for a registered asylum-seeker like himself to pursue his wish to study in another European country which has the masters program he is wanting to take? Or does he need to stay on in Greece until his Application is prosessed? Can he get a visa to go abroad for higher education without a final ruling on his asylum? Specifically to Germany. Alternatively, he is desperate enough, after having waited for 5 years, to go across borders illegally and seek asylum elsewhere. How will the Dublin agreement be Applied in such a case, say if he made it to Germany and Applied there. Would they honour the agreement or would they, knowing how the conditions are in Greece still, disregard it for humanitarian reasons? Sincerly, Katrine
