  1. Untermieter rights with guests with covid related twist

      The Mieterverein can't help the OP because is on the other side of the contract. Furthermore, the notice period is possibly shorter depending on whether or not it is furnished. 
  2. Why are you unhappy today?

          No, he didn't. Border officials have the right to refuse foreigners entry.    The border guards were the ones who acted unlawfully.    For the record I'm not in any way making excuses for the guards. The point I want to make is that foreigners can be turned away at the border and I suspect that we're going to hear about this happening to Brits who were trying to live "under the radar" (not complying with local requirements) more often post Brexit.   
  3. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

    Berlin has started a pilot project to start having company doctors vaccinate employees at work. The city has set aside 13,000 doses for this project between now and June 7, the day the federal government will officially start giving company doctors the opportunity to order vaccines.   https://www.berlin.de/sen/gpg/service/presse/2021/pressemitteilung.1083707.php   Your employer will inform you if they are vaccinating. Or ask your worker's council.
  4.   Are you suggesting that foreigners married to Germans should be allowed to keep their original citizenship, but all others foreigners should have to give up their original citizenship to become German?!?!?   That is even more ridiculous than the current rules.
  5.   Read the post again. The OP is looking for very specialised tax advice not cookie cutter standard advice for the masses.   @knowbot   Read posts from @Straightpoop to get an idea of the depth of her knowledge base and then ask her for a quote.
  6. Why this forum speaks English and not German

        Although B1 is sufficient to apply for German citizenship, it is not an indication of actual fluency. 
  7. Legalities of unpaid praktikum

      How does that help the two posters in this thread who are receiving ALGI? Unpaid mandatory internships for students are legal in Germany, however, students are not generally eligible for unemployment benefits. Therefore, unless the internships are organised by the Agentur für Arbeit, I don't see any circumstances where someone claiming ALG I could legally take an unpaid internship.
  8. Urgent help required permanent residency

            Twice a week is excessive. No wonder you are being ignored.
  9. UK pension S1 form and Krankenkasse agreement

      I think it is just wishful thinking. The explanations available on websites are just superficial explanations of standard cases, i.e. a Brit who was resident in Germany on Dec 31, 2020, and remains living in Germany has 5 years to apply for the permit. 
  10. Swedish pension benefits and Kurzarbeitergeld

        It doesn't sound as if your Swedish pension would be considered similar to a Teilrente in Germany.    https://www.deutsche-rentenversicherung.de/SharedDocs/Glossareintraege/DE/T/teilrente.html;jsessionid=DCBE677F87629C0B20A11BAE5E4FD82D.delivery2-7-replication
  11. Signed for private health insurance by mistake

      SGB V, however, I'm not sure that reading individual laws will help you untangle your problem if you don't understand how they fit together.     
  12. What are you cooking today?

    Thanks @Sannerl   I always have trouble figuring out which cuts I can use for which recipes.     
  13. What are you cooking today?

        What it is called in German? What would be a similar German cut?
  14.   Hepatitis A & B can be transmitted sexually, however, sex is not the only way to get them (Hep A can be transmitted through contaminated water and Hep B through blood transfusions). I got both of these vaccines as a combi dose before my first trip to Asia and I don‘t know how this information makes a statement about my private life. I also don’t see how this info is anyway sensitive nor do I care if anyone knows that I've had them. 
  15. Short-term apartment rent

        Considering how difficult to find both housing a Kita spots, once you find one it'll narrow down options for the other.  
  16. Signed for private health insurance by mistake

        If you were self-employed the minimum income threshold does not apply.    I think you should start a new thread and but ALL relevant info together. 
  17. Freelance from Germany, get paid in another country

        It is only part of the solution. You also require your employer's permission and most importantly you have to declare any additional income to Agentur für Arbeit.     
  18. Legalities of unpaid praktikum

  19. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

      They were supposed to get AZ and then AZ was restricted to those over 60.   In case they haven't received the official info yet, you might want to mention it to them.    I know someone over 60 who called yesterday and was able to get an appointment in the last week of May.      
  20. Vaccinations Brandenburg

    Brandenburg has now made it possible for residents under 60 to receive AstraZeneca through their doctors even if they do not belong to a priority group. As of now, the other vaccines are only (officially) available to those in one of the 3 priority groups.    https://brandenburg-impft.de/bb-impft/de/impfungen-in-arztpraxen/
  21. Freelance from Germany, get paid in another country

            No! Your plans would violate the terms of your residence permit AND also be tax evasion AND potentially social security fraud.     
  22. Insurance for PhD student (no employment contract)

              You have a problem. As a foreigner with a study permit you are not allowed to be self-employed. 
  23.   Actually there are still properties in East Berlin whose ownership is still not yet settled.    @Loreta   Try Torstraße between Friedrichstraße and Rosenthalerplatz as well as the side streets going north. 
  24. UK pension S1 form and Krankenkasse agreement

        I think this is the root of your problems. It seems that you filed your taxes in both countries as if it was your primary residence. However, for social security purposes you needed to have established which Member State was your primary residence. As soon as you can determine where you primary residence for social security purposes was, you can determine the rest easily.
  25. UK pension S1 form and Krankenkasse agreement

      It is somewhat complicated and for some reason not many people bother to even read the treaties although they are available in many languages. Furthermore,  I think it is not worth it for a professional to look up the info for just one client and many EU citizens don't realise that FoM brings not only rights, but also responsibilities.    Panda is now a German Steuerberaterin (and if you read some of her old posts you can see that it started out as a hobby for her ), but I'm not sure if she is taking on any new clients.    Alternatively you could try SOLVIT.
