  1. Workpermit issue

    Hello,   I have a Blue card and the employer dependent work permit from January 2018. I recently lost my job in September and have to change my visa status to Job-seeking. In October, I submitted my passport for the visa stamping and until now I haven't received it. I have a Blue card with me they just took my work permit. Meanwhile, I have an offer from a company and they want me to start from the second week of January. The 'Auslanderbehorde' had told me that if I get a new work contract they will provide me the new work permit. I have following questions,   1) Can they hold my passport for more than two months?   2) The amount of time they are taking for the Job seeking visa, I am afraid that I would not get the work permit in time. Due to Christmas and new year, it seems more difficult to me. Is there any way that this process can be done in less time or other document such as 'FIktionbescheinigung'?    Any tips and information would be appreciated. 
  2. Hello,    I am a Master graduate submitting my Master thesis by this month (December, 2018) but I have my thesis defense schedule on February, 2019 (last week) due to unavailability of my supervisor. Now I got a work contract starting from February 1, 2019. Is it possible to apply for work permit now? In this case I would have submitted my thesis but not defended it yet by the time I am applying for  work permit.
  3. Hello All, I am in a difficult situation now. I hope someone here can guide me or give a clear information on what to do. I traveled from India to Germany as part of 18 months deputation I got from my Indian company. Now I am in my 8th month of deputation. I got a job offer from a German company which seems ideal for me. I got the contract letter from the company and I shared the same with the Ausländerbehörde (Immigration office) here. They verified my contract letter and told me that there is no problem in switching to the new job and they even told me that they will start processing the blue card as well. But I didn't got any appointment for the same.   I put resignation in my current company and my company insisting me to go back to India for serving the notice period. My kid is only 1 month old and I need to apply for her passport since I didn't got her birth certificate yet. My wife came as my dependent and she got the residence permit card as well which got an open work permit. My work permit is tied to my Indian employer. So my concern is can I travel to India with the residence permit I have with me. What if the company cancels my work permit by the time I go to India for serving the notice period?. How much time it will take to switch the visa to my new employer. I am in a tough situation now. Any advice or information will be a great relief for me. Thank you all.
