Travel documents for Eritrean nationals enjoying subsidiary protection

In Hamburg, travel documents for foreigners have been issued to Eritrean citizens with subsidiary protection since November 2020 on the basis of "new findings" by the Aliens Department.

The acquisition of a national passport is subject to the aspect of reasonableness. The unreasonableness of obtaining a passport does not result from the status as a person entitled to subsidiary protection.

Which reasons for the change of the administrative practice in Hamburg are crucial, is however not recognizable.
