  1. Living in Munich but paid in USD - is it allowed?

    True true  Haha did you Google me?   Thanks for taking the time to find this posting. I'm familiar with Mynaric. I was interviewed by their MD in 2018 (was rejected) and then i sent them a new application in 2019 (they didn't bother rejecting this time, they just ignored it). So I won't be applying there any time soon 
  2. Living in Munich but paid in USD - is it allowed?

    Yes, that's why I said being in Munich isn't essential to my work. I can do it from anywhere.   I have considered it but one can't exactly force someone to marry one.
  3. Living in Munich but paid in USD - is it allowed?

    Because I love this city. Because my loved ones and friends live here. I'm not keen to start all over again in a new place at this point in my life

    Thank you for your response. I'm not sure I agree with everything you said: I have an American acquaintance who's a freelance english teacher in Munich and I don't think he has a crazy high income; and he most definitely doesn't have any employees

    Uff - yes I got that feeling. Thanks for your input!

    You're right I am in India right now. The plan is to apply for a job seeker visa and return as soon as possible. Once there, I plan to apply for a freelancer/self employed permit for which I need a business plan (which I'm working on right now). The reason I'm slightly nervous about it is because last year, I applied for the same permit, but as a painter/artist. The only problem was that I wasn't making much money. The IHK had accepted my application but at the last minute the KVR said no. And when I'd asked them why they said they have the discretion to do what they like and since I don't have a degree in art (my degree is in engineering), they said they'd rejected my application.   Now, I have the income, but firstly, I don't have a degree in being an influencer (does one even exist, I wonder?); secondly and more importantly, I'm getting paid in dollars and living in Munich is not essential to my job. That's why I'm concerned about a second rejection

    I'd created this account some years ago back when I lived in France. I haven't lived there since then

    Student visa but I've been outside the EU this year because of covid-19 and will only return in a few months time. I have to apply for a new visa now because the old one's expired and I'm no longer a student. So I'd be applying for a "Job seeker" visa to come back and work out this process. But I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row before I come back so that this process takes as little time as possible. I pay health insurance to TK

    Haha no I'm not advertising, just asking. If I were, I'd have specified the name of the organisation (which I haven't!)
  10. So, I'm a non EU national (not American!). My job is an influencer so I work for an online platform like YouTube. My total monthly earnings from various social platforms are in the range of 3500 - 4000 USD of which I receive 3000 - 3500 euros in my bank, after transfer fees and USD to EUR conversion rates. I have only recently started earning (since April) from this job - so I'm aware that I must apply for a new kind of permit as being self employment at the KVR. I don't have any contract, my hours and income are upto me. More hours = more income. My question is, well, would they accept this ? I know their main concern is that Non EU nationals might become dependent on the state and so try to limit the risk of this happening. But, my income has been stable, and has been slightly increasing every month. What do you think? I'm currently working on a business plan to submit to them with all my financials. Is there anyone else here who has a similar experience? Thanks!
