  1. Six month "Looking for Work" visa.

    Alright, so we are good to go. Job seeking Visa in hand! @someonesdaughter and @Himmelszelt excellent tip with checking every day, randomly a day/time in late Jan became open, and I grabbed it up and the rest is history :)
  2. will take a look and pass it along, thanks again!
  3. Hey all, my company is putting on an event next week - (we have 50 plus folks attending so far!). I'll be speaking as well as one of my colleagues, and we're looking to hire a translator (from English to German) for it. It would be several hours, in the morning through early afternoon.   Does anyone know a good service for this? Any recommendations welcome, thanks!
  4. Hey, just curious if you know any cool spots to hold an event anywhere in Berlin in a couple weeks (ideally central - I realize in Berlin that's a relative term)?   It would be for my company's conference. Something that can hold around 100 people ideally. We want to avoid stuffy old ballrooms with no windows, a place in a cool hotel or coworking space would be idea.   Open to all suggestions, thanks in advance!!
  5. Six month "Looking for Work" visa.

    Thanks so much for the advice everyone -the links were especially helpful too. Will keep you all updated how it goes! (Won't be for a few months though til I apply for it, probably late March)
  6. getting rid of washing machine

    Since the current washing machine we have hasn't been reliably working, we plan on getting a new one from our local Media Markt (Berlin Neukölln).   It looks like they will deliver it too, which is great (we don't have a car), but what do we do with our old one? We just want to get rid of it... any ideas? Can we offer the guys who deliver our new one like 20 or 30 Euro or something to take the old one with them and dispose of it somehow?   Thanks in advance!!
  7. 6 month job seeking visa questions

    Thanks for the quick response - would there be any way you can elaborate? :)
  8. I'll be applying for the 6 month job seeking visa myself and had a couple questions in case anyone could help - thanks in advanced! If you could answer either (or both) of these that'd be super helpful thanks   QUESTION 1:   I need to make an appointment to get it, and though my USA tourist visa expires in February, there were not any appointment slots open until March 2019, BUT as long as I attend my appointment, and do not leave Germany after it expires in February, I will be OK.   Still, I am a little nervous since it still means my US tourist visa will be expired for roughly 1 month before my appointment! I'm understanding this correctly, right?   Here is the section from the website (https://formular.berlin.de/xima-forms-29/get/14963116144270000?mandantid=/OTVBerlin_LABO_XIMA/000-01/instantiationTasks.properties) I'm referring to:   * If, when booking your appointment, your residence permit or national visa (type of visa: D) has not yet expired, the residence permit or national visa will be considered as continuing in Germany at least until the appointment scheduled today. This also applies to all conditions stipulated on your residence permit or national visa, including the regulations pertaining to gainful employment. Please be aware that this will only apply, if you attend the booked appointment! Travelling abroad is only possible within the validity of your last residence permit.   QUESTION 2:   I checked this page https://service.berlin.de/dienstleistung/324661/en/ but I am confused regarding this section:   "Possession of a residence permit that allows pursuit of an economic activity (only in the case of previous residency)  In the case of foreigners already resident in the Federal territory with another residence permit, this permit must have been issued for an occupation or self-employed activity (sections 18 - 21 of Residence Act). Generally a residence permit for another purpose of residence cannot be issued during a stay for study purposes or family reasons, for example."   Here is my question: since I had a Freelance English Teaching permit in Hamburg (expired several years ago), does this mean I am now not eligible to apply for the job seeking permit? I currently do not hold any other visa or permit except for the tourist visa (US citizen).   Thanks so much for any advice you can give!!
