Dublin-Verfahren: The Dublin procedure regulates the admission of asylum seekers in the EU in accordance with the Dublin III Regulations.

The most crucial point of the Dublin III regulation states that asylum seekers must apply for asylum in the European state where they can prove they have entered first. Dublin regulations may not apply when there are humanitarian reasons. Only unaccompanied minors have the right to go to their families or get accepted where they are regardless of Dublin regulations.
