  1. After reading some of the hilarious DIY jobs from lockdown and also the horror stories from some on threads about not being able to explain what you want I thought I’d mention this here.    I have been cutting men’s hair in Scotland for 8 years, from 3 years old to 90 years. All types of haircuts; long scissor work, sharp fades, classics, afro and beards too.    I’m based in Hannover in Südstadt.    I can post more details of the shop if I’ve posted this in the correct place and anyone is interested.    Kids, husbands, partners, significant others all welcome.   BH
  2. How long can I stay in Germany?

    Having only been there this morning my hard copy card will take 6-8 weeks so im not sure if it will say GB on it but will let you know.    All 4 visits I made to the Ausländerbehörde in regards to which category I fell into seemed to confuse those who took my appointment. Purely because of the lack of a stamp to say I arrived post-Brexit. Even other colleagues in the room hadn’t the slightest as it hadn’t happened as of yet and the question was passed around. I’m sure they have 10 copies of my passport now excluding the emails I’ve sent them.   I would say if you are waiting to hear back and don’t within a week make another appointment as things seem to move faster when you discuss in person.    I checked every Monday at 8am when the new appointments were released online to get one. 
  3. How long can I stay in Germany?

    They did not explain why and I was not going to question why, I smiled (under my FFP2 mask) and nodded.    I also did not expect to be given as long a permit I thought it may have been between 1-2 years.   Very lucky I am sure.   I provided a job contract in my previous meeting there and I can only assume due to my arrival being before the 1st of January that I fall under the withdrawal agreement as there were questions as to my passport not having a stamp on it.    I am cutting hair here in Hannover, I have seen a “computery stuff” course that I hope to pursue in the future.    My German has improved a lot since coming into the shop. Although some like to practice their English. 
  4. How long can I stay in Germany?

    Yeah I realise the post comes across smug which was intended to be honest after receiving some unwelcoming cold information.   Thankfully not everyone on this forum is that way inclined, I do really appreciate all the welcome friendly and some humorous advice offered here. As it should be considering this is a forum for people who are unsure of protocol. They come here for help not to be made to feel small and stupid.    BH
  5. How long can I stay in Germany?

    So I thought I’d post an update to the thread after being to the Ausländerbehörde this morning.    I have been given a residence permit valid for 10 years, within 5 available to apply for unlimited.   I did not get married, I found a job within my field regardless of a formal qualification.    Thank you to anyone who replied to this thread with useful rather than smug and entitled information.    BH 
  6. Sour dough bread making in Deutschland

      This is the video I was going from mainly because I want to see how good a bread I can make without fancy equipment.   I’ve also read that if you use tap water to let it sit out over night so if there are any impurities (like chlorine) they will evaporate out.   Going to keep the starter out at room temp and feed everyday for 7 days then use to bake.    As I won’t be baking every week I will go from everyday feeding to refrigerating and feeding once a week after that. 
  7. Sour dough bread making in Deutschland

    I’ve read through the previous threads in regards to sour dough and many other bread related topics but can’t seem to see any specific flour types used regarding a starter.   Although I’m sure you can use most flour types.    Curious to see if there are any bakers on here who make it regularly.    
  8. Has anyone made sourdough/yeast bread over here and if so could you recommend which flour type you used for the starter?   Have began a starter with 405 type and it’s getting some bubbles days into it, was curious if there was any one who had more experience on here. 
  9. Hey new here and was looking for any information to my situation which could be helpful. I've had a look online at both UK and German government websites but still unclear on the stance of this because of Brexit.   I came to visit my girlfriend who lives in Hannover before Christmas and due to the UK going into lockdown my return flight was cancelled. The shop I work in, in the UK is now closed so I can't go back to work so I decided to stay here in Hannover.   I am looking to move here to live with her eventually but due to COVID it has obviously made things more difficult.   My question is: Legally how long can I stay here? I do not want to have a mark against my name which could make my moving here in the future more of a hassle. As I came here in December 2020 I did not need a visa to enter Germany. I seen on the gov website if I plan to stay for more than 90 days to apply for a visa within 14 days of being here which has now passed... It is looking perhaps more likely im going to be here for longer as if I fly to the UK now, I probably wont get to see my girlfriend until flights resume again?   Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks BH
