Need clarification: Niederlassungserlaubnis under AufenthG §18b with 'temporary' work contract

4 posts in this topic

Dear Toytown Community, 

 

I have a question regarding the Permanent Residency (Niederlassungserlaubnis or NE for short) under the AufenthG§18b. 

The AufenthG §18b is for those who have completed a degree from German Universities, non-EU Blue-Card holder. 

The details can be found here:AufenthG 18b

 

Now, I am currently working as a Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter with a University which is under the Federal Government. My current visa status is hence under AufenthG §18 Abz. 4, S.1.

My work contract is for 3 years (or 36 months). Out of which I have already finished 22 months. I am planning to apply for NE after I am done making the mandatory 24 months contribution towards the Rentenversicherung (Pension Insurance) fund (in accordance with AufenthG §18b, point number 3). I will be applying from the City of Hamburg, where I am currently posted and where I live.

 

Now AufenthG §18b connects to AufenthG §9. Over there, paragraph 2, point number 2 asks for a guarantee that my livelihood is secured at the time of application. Now at the time of application, I can show that my livelihood is secured for another 12 months at least (through my Arbeitsvertrag/Work Contract).

 

The sticking point that I am worried about is - if that (12 months remaining on Arbeitsvertrag) will suffice in fulfilling the requirement stated under AufenthG §9 Abz. 2. S.2 to the satisfaction of the issuing authority. I would be grateful if someone can clarify this with their insight/experience on a matter similar to this one.

 

Cheers!

If you don't have a permanent job contract, most likely they won't give you a PR. They would want to see that you have long term prospects here. Having contributed 24 months into the pension is not enough.

Were you able to get Niederlassungserlaubnis on a temporary contract? I'll be in a similar situation.
