Unlimited residence after 6 months

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

I have an unlimited residence (Niederlassungserlaubnis), and left Germany 8 months ago for good, now I work and live in the USA.

 

Thinking that my card is still valid, I bought a ticket to Germany next month - didn't know NE expires after 6months.

Now, my question is what happens if I fly? Would border stop me? Anyone in my situation before?

 

I just had all Europe trip planned don't want to burn all the tickets :(

Unless you made other arrangements with your ABH before you left, your NE is now void (see §51 Abs. 1 Nr. 6, Nr. 6).

As an Indian citizen you require a visa to enter the Schengen Area and you do not have a valid one. If the border control realises that you're NE is void they will not let you enter. It is impossible to know in advance whether or not they would notice.

Why don't you apply for a Schengen visa?
