In how far do residence restriction or obligation have an impact on the admission to a women’s shelter or on moving to another shelter?

If a woman has already moved to a women’s shelter due to acute violence, then the fol-lowing issues should be noted: In case of an exi-sting obligation to reside in another municipality or district, a request has to be filed with the authorities at the arrival location, so as to be reallocated to the municipality in which the women’s shelter is located.

There might also exist a residence obligation (see here), so that by changing the women’s shelter, the woman concerned will commit an offence. However, if committed by a woman who has been affected by violence and who flees to escape her perpetrator, such an offence will be considered justified and has no direct negative impact on the asylum procedure.
