honigbiene posted a topic in Visas/permitsDear Toytown Community, I have a question regarding the Permanent Residency (Niederlassungserlaubnis or NE for short) under the AufenthG§18b. The AufenthG §18b is for those who have completed a degree from German Universities, non-EU Blue-Card holder. The details can be found here:AufenthG 18b Now, I am currently working as a Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter with a University which is under the Federal Government. My current visa status is hence under AufenthG §18 Abz. 4, S.1. My work contract is for 3 years (or 36 months). Out of which I have already finished 22 months. I am planning to apply for NE after I am done making the mandatory 24 months contribution towards the Rentenversicherung (Pension Insurance) fund (in accordance with AufenthG §18b, point number 3). I will be applying from the City of Hamburg, where I am currently posted and where I live. Now AufenthG §18b connects to AufenthG §9. Over there, paragraph 2, point number 2 asks for a guarantee that my livelihood is secured at the time of application. Now at the time of application, I can show that my livelihood is secured for another 12 months at least (through my Arbeitsvertrag/Work Contract). The sticking point that I am worried about is - if that (12 months remaining on Arbeitsvertrag) will suffice in fulfilling the requirement stated under AufenthG §9 Abz. 2. S.2 to the satisfaction of the issuing authority. I would be grateful if someone can clarify this with their insight/experience on a matter similar to this one. Cheers!
honigbiene posted a topic in Visas/permitsMoin Moin Toytowners, I have a Niederlassungserlaubnis under §18b (Settlement permit for graduates of German university) which was issues last year in the month of January. Now, as I checked the lawbook of Aufenthaltsgesetz, I discovered that they have revised it and §18b is now something completely different. My question: Do I need to contact my ABH and ask if my Niederlassungserlaubnis is still valid? (my card explicitly mentions "§18b") As of now, my residence permit card says 18b, which is certainly wrong as per the newly revised lawbook. What I am trying to ask is, perhaps, if I am still a valid Niederlassungserlaubnis holder or not. I cannot find any law that is equivalent to the old §18b anymore. Regards, H. Bee
honigbiene posted a topic in Visas/permitsHi Toytowners, I have recently applied for my naturalization here in Hamburg. I have applied after 6 years of living here in Germany. I am curious to know how long has it taken for some of you who might have already received their certificate from Hamburg (or other state/city). I have been going through the Internet for the past 48 hours, but did not come across anything useful. So, therefore thought of asking here. So, can you TT-ers share your experience regarding your Naturalisation process? Does not matter which state you are from. I would love to learn about your experiences. It might also help others who are similarly curious about it. My apologies if this question has already been asked here under some other thread. I failed to find it either. A link to that thread would be much appreciated. Many thanks, H.Bee
