Batistuta posted a topic in Visas/permitsHi all, I am a recent PhD graduate in NRW (graduated when I am under §18 AufenthG!! not under §16 AufenthG). I worked at research center as a PhD researcher for 3 years with §18, then my contract has finished and I started getting ALG1 and my visa was extended (§18 AufenthG again) for one year to complete my PhD and I got ALG1 for ten months. Recently, I got my Dr. title and I would like to extend my visa as much as possible, but as much as I understand 18 months of visa extension is only for people graduated under (§16 AufenthG). Is that correct? So, how long can I extend my visa and under which "gesetz"? Thank you very much beforehand!
