I would also recommend that you seek a counseling center that can help you prepare for your interview, they can also answer what documents you should bring. Since your interview is fast approaching I would suggest contacting various organization to see which one is available.

Dear Yara,
Thank you so much for sharing the guideline document. It's really helpful.

I am living in Budingen city, a sub city of Friedberg. I appreciate it if you could share contact details of the counceling center in my living area?


Dear Rizwan Khan, you are very welcome. I found the following centers in Büdingen (post code 63654)
However, I am not sure how specialized they are in preparing asylum seekers for the interview. Please let us know if you have contacted them.
Since Gießen is a much larger city, they will probably have more resources to help you there.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask us here.
Best wishes
