  1. Permanent residence permit (Blue Card)

    Not sure what's so blurry about that. You can get the NE regularly by working and living for 60 months, or in an accelerated way by working in a "Blue Card job" (irrespectively of whether you actually had a blue card or not) for 33/21 months.   You make a convincing argument that specifically your future income is likely to be similar to your last month, not what you had two years ago, but it's not trivial to write a rule that would not be open to abuse (e.g. what if someone applies for a job where he is only fired as underqualified at the end of the Probezeit? what if someone makes massively overtime for a few months and gets his compensation during that time inflated? what if someone works in an overhyped industry?)
  2. There is no hard rule that you need to provide a contract within 3 months. It's up to the ABH how much time they can allow the person for the job search (and in fact you should have been in contact with them!) The general guideline, however, is 3 to 6 months (e.g. it is written in the VAB ABH Berlin) so it is not likely to be a problem.    You might be required to prove that you have enough money to support yourself before the start of the new contract though.   
  3. Do subsequent Blue Cards adds up for NE?

    If you ever work within Europe again they will count, even if you are not working specifically in Germany:
  4. Also the recipients of ALG I are also entitled to the yearly vacation, e.g. if you worked from January from November without a vacation and want to start receiving ALG I and take a vacation in December, I believe that shouldn't be an issue.
  5. Of course you have a choice. If you registered as unemployed but politely explained that you will not be available to interviews (which is your right – people can't be forced to work outside of prison context), they will politely explain that they will will (as far as I know) pay for your health insurance but not give the ALG I money itself. This is what you want, right?    Out of curiosity, do you not want to receive the ALG I as a principle? If so, could you clarify what makes you uncomfortable about using the insurance that you paid into? E.g. if you had an insurance again theft and your bike was stolen would you also refuse the insurance money for the bike?   It just sounds a bit from your use of the word "dole" like you mix the ALG I (the unemployment benefits system for people who look for work that you paid every month into from your salary) and the ALG II (the system for people who don't have any money and who often are long-term unemployed, i.e. the pure social transfer).
  6. Losing Job as a non-EU National

      @uziel   This thinking – quit my job and look for something better – is something extremely atypical in Germany. It's in most cases advisable to be looking for work while you are still receiving the salary from your current job.   Note if your current job goes bankrupt and has to fire you you will get a few months of extra payment, time off to search for work and the unemployment benefits, perhaps including payment for the German courses, if your job search doesn't work out.   Of course, it's still your right to quit unilaterally, but I do recommend you ask for advice first.   Now to answer the actual questions:   1 Yes, of course you should always plan for the worst. After 3 months you will be eligible for the ALG I, shall the need arise. 2 No, they are fine with breaks between the jobs.
