  1. 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.
  2.   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.  
  3.   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!
  4. 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)
  5. Why are you unhappy today?

      I don't know. I didn't open the letter. (they asked me not to) I got the corrected letter in person the next day in the office. I don't feel I need a legal advisor and am on the job hunt already. They are also helping me to find a new job as it really is purely due to financial reasons and I'm not the only one being let go.   Thanks for the advise though and thank you  Hopefully I find something soon. Luckily I am in IT, so there are so many job openings.
