alexwenner posted a topic in Visas/permitsHello, I'm a Blue Card holder and been living in Berlin with my wife for a year now. I have to go back to my home country and probably stay there for a couple of years due to personal issues. I understand that my Blue Card will get voided but in the future, we want to come back and live in Germany again. A couple of questions: 1- What are the steps I should take before leaving Germany? I heard there is a de-registeration process 2- Knowing that we want to be back in the future, what should be taken into consideration? 3- Is there a way to ask German Foreign Office to not void the Blue Card and hold it for 2-3 years? Thank you in advance.
CaptainMcAwesome posted a topic in Visas/permitsI understand that if i have a blue card in germany, i am entitled to apply for a permanent residency after 21 months (with B1 + etc...) but what i do not understand is how would a permanent residency differ from a blue card? - validity if lost my job? - validity if i left germany for a long time ? - voting? i have no idea what advantages/disadvantages it has over the normal EU blue card. Can anyone help ?
sandowl posted a topic in Life in MunichHi all, I am a non-EU citizen and I was in Blue card tied up with my employer and the employer terminated my contract on April 30th, and that was during my probation. And the HR asked me to register in Agentur für Arbeit within days which I did but did not ask me to go to "Ausländerbehörde München". Also the staff in Agentur für Arbeit told me that I could stay as long as I want in the country to search a new job but later I realised that this was a wrong information. Also I did not go to "Ausländerbehörde München" yet as I was busy with interviews and finally got a new job offer on May 24th. Now I have to go to "Ausländerbehörde München" with my new job contract to amend my blue card. Will there be a problem as I did not inform them for 20+ days? As I had back to back interviews, calls and in-person interviews, and I thought getting a job was the priority. Also what are the documents that I need to submit along with the job contract for my case? Please help me out. Thank you.
I am working in Germany since June 2017. I have Aufenthaltserlaubnis tied to my company. When I came to Germany, I applied for the Blue card because I was meeting salary requirements and my job is in IT area. But I couldn't get Blue card instead they gave me Aufenthaltserlaubnis. Frankly speaking, I didn't even know that I was not approved for Blue card because nobody told me that. I was assuming that I got the blue card because I didn't know the difference between Aufenthaltserlaubnis and blue card. Now I have completed 21 months of my stay in Germany so I went to Mirationsamt for asking about applying for Niederlassungserlaubnis. But there, I came to know that I don't have a Blue card and I have Aufenthaltserlaubnis. And the reason for not getting Blue Card was that I didn't do Anerkennung of my foreign university degrees while applying for Blue Card. So they gave me Aufenthatlserlaubnis. So I can't apply for Niederlassungserlaubnis now. My Aufenthaltserlaubnis is valid until June 2019 (until the next 2 months). The lady at Migrationsamt told me that I have 2 options now. 1) I can apply to extend Aufenthaltserlaubnis 2) I can apply for Blue card with Anerkennung of my degrees. - I am not sure what are the benefits of Blue card over Aufenthaltserlaubnis. Are there any? - If I apply for Blue card and get it, can I apply immediately to Niederlassungserlaubnis because I was eligible for the blue card for the whole 21 months till now? Or I have to wait another 21 months after I get the Blue card?
