  1. Hi there.    Does anyone know the effect of Kurzarbeit on the accelerated Niederlassungserlaubnis/permanent residence vi the Blue Card?   Normally the permanent residence is possible after 21 or 33 months of working in a qualified job and salary with corresponding pension contributions. However, with Kurzarbeit the salary is effectively reduced as are the pension contributions.    In my case, my salary is just at the Blue Card minimum, so any reduction could be considered an “unqualified” month which cannot be counted to the reduced time required for permanent residence. I say “could be” because despite repeated attempts I have not been able to get any response or confirmation from the Ausländerbehörde on this topic.    Currently I am not on Kurzarbeit however it may come soon, and I want to know if this is worth worrying about.    Does anyone have experience or a concrete answer?
