  1. Is this How Health Treatment Works in Germany?

    I had a similar experience. Went to emergency room after hurting my foot. They told me to go to my house doctor to get a transfer letter to be able to a see the specialist. So had to go to the house doctor, then back to the same hospital to see a different doctor. Also didn't understand it.   Would be interesting to know if this is normal. Cause I found it a lil silly. Especially when the injury makes walking impossible. The hubby had to take off work to drive me up and down.
  2. The "UP Side" of Quarantine

    I've been working on my German grammar every single day after work (Home Office), found myself a speach therapist to work on my accent as well as working out really regularly (3 / 4 times a week as well as a nice walk in the woods once a week). We've also been saving more money now that we can't go to restaurants or travel. I miss travelling, but it's nice watching our savings account getting nice and fat.
  3.   Sorry, but I have no idea. I never did the Blue Card process as my degree was not recognised. So my experience ends at Anabin.    Contact the applicable authorities who were responsible for your Blue Card Application for more information about why you didn't get it.  
  4.   Check on  https://anabin.kmk.org/anabin.html  to see if your degree is recognised. You have to find the degree as well as the university. If it's not there, you can apply to have it recognised for a few hundred euros, but they could reject it.   Good luck!
  5. I got AE(aufenthaltserlaubnis) though I am eligible for Blue Card

      Not necessarily. I've been working in Germany as a Software Developer for 2 years, making more money than OP (starting salary stated), and my degree is not only not recognised in Germany, but it's only a Higher National Diploma. (So no Bachelor's degree)   So it could be that OP doesn't qualify for a Blue Card (like me)
