  1. Hi,  I just received word that my freelance visa was rejected, but I still have a chance to appeal (and I will). I am desperate for work though and applying for full time positions now. Does anyone know if gaining a full time work visa would even be possible in my current situation?    
  2. I have a question regarding my Blue Card (I am from the US) and secondary employment. I’m currently working on a project that will result in a product in my free time after work. Soon, I'd like to form an UG with my project partner. He is also non-EU on a Blue Card. My visa is sponsored by my employer and it does not allow me to take up secondary employment (though my employer doesn’t care). I would prefer not to obtain permanent residency, though I know that I am entitled to an "easy" application for it, as I will return to the US within the next 2 years. So, two questions: 1) My Blue Card has an accompanying document (Zusatzblatt) that states "Selbständige Tätigkeit night gestattet. Nach zweijähriger Dauer dieser Beschäftigung ist die Beschäftigung jeder Art gestattet." - Does this mean that I am already allowed to work secondary forms of employment after 2 years? Would that also be enough for me to begin to form my own business entity or must I obtain permanent residency?  2) If I could form an UG without becoming a permanent resident, could I request permission to do so from the authorities (as in, change the Zusatzblatt document to say that secondary forms of employment are allowed)? Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Hey guys,    I have a work visa - 18 ABS.4 S.1 - which is tied to a company and it is valid till May 2021. I voluntarily terminated my contract and it will end at the end of this month. I am suppose to start a new job from next month. But I received the email from foreign office last week I cannot start the job until they and employment agency have approved the new job. As it could take weeks or even months to get approval, I am stuck and I could really use your help 🙏🏽   - I finished my masters in Dec 2018 but is there a chance to ask for a work search visa under section 20 or some other type of visa while they process all the documents, so I can start with out a delay?    - If can only start on 15th Jan or 1st Feb. How should I deal with my health insurance for the period I was out of the job?   - I have worked full time for 22 months after my studies and I also paid around 1-1.5k in social security during my studies. Would I be eligible for some benefits if I have to be unemployed for few weeks or months?   Thanks in advance. 
  4. Hi, I'm looking for any advisor or visa support agency/consultant to guide me with options available to me in case I want to bring my parent as dependents. I know this is much more difficult  than spouse and I may need to pay all the necessary social security/insurance contributions which is fair. I just wanted to know my prospects because I'm supporting them in my home country and I would feel much better if they are with me. Anyway, the question is I don't see any such advisors/agency in this subforum as I can see for finance/tax advisors. Could someone point me in the right direction, obviously I'm looking for English speaking consultants/advisors.   Thanks.
  5. Hello everyone ,   I need to know if i am eligible to apply for the permanent residency in Germany.   I came in Oct 2014 and graduated in Dec 2017. After that i started working since sep 2018 having blue card at the time, for some reason i get laid off by my employer and have to look for a new job, which i found within two months and i started working again in Jan 2019. I have to move to new state for this Job and i did not get my blue card back and Immigration office told me to apply for a new one at new place. For new Job i get Aufenthaltstitel 18 ABS which is valid till May 2020. So now i have paid my tax for 21 months and completed my B1 language test too, am i eligible to apply for niederlassungerlaubnis or what else i should know to apply for it ? I also have paid social security for 6 months as a student.   I know 21 month rule applies to one which holds the blue card but what should i consider in my case as i had it for 9 months and after that it was 18 abs for rest year.    Thanks in advance    Best regards
  6. On my Aufenthaltstitel it says "Erwerbstätigkeit gestattet".  I know that means I have full labor access, but I was wondering what this means for working for other countries in the EU. Can I work for a company in Ireland or France, for example on a remote basis? 
  7. Hi Everyone,   I'm an expat living and working in Germany since 3 years with bluecard. I've recently completed my 33 months in Germany & wanted to start my Permanent residence visa process. I didn't have Leben in Deutschland certificate. I finally managed to get an exam appointment in neighboring city. Long story short, I gave the exam almost 2 weeks ago & now awaiting the results.   My question is considering that my leben in deutschland result document is on the way, can I go ahead and submit my application at Ausslanderamt so that they kickstart the process and once I've the leben in deutschland document, I can submit that as well?     For the application process, do I need to fix an in person appointment at ABH? If so, how can I procure this appointment considering that they don't tend to you if you go to ABH office unless you've an appointment. They're not picking up the calls - lots of people have been complaining about it.     The reason I'm asking this question here is because Ausslanderamt in Aachen is completely non responsive over the phone (They don't pickup), they respond via emails to certain questions but in my experience, for every email I've sent I get the respond almost 10-12 days later.    Another question is if someone applied for PR in Aachen or in general, over the last couple of months during & after the lockdown, how long did it take for you to get your PR card?
