Ozonthemove posted a topic in Visas/permitsGood morning! I moving to Germany in July (I am married to a German citizen and have dual citizen children). I have a question in regards, specifically to the residency permit (not the Visa). I will need this permit number straight away, perhaps even before arrival in Germany. Is this possible? Can this be organised through a consulate prior to arrival in Germany? If not, on registration, is the number given to you straight away, or do you need to wait until it is sent to you? Does anyone have any experience in relation to this? Thanks in advance!
