Visa extension after PhD graduation under §18 AufenthG

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am a recent PhD graduate in NRW (graduated when I am under §18 AufenthG!! not under §16 AufenthG). I worked at research center as a PhD researcher for  3 years with §18, then my contract has finished and I started getting ALG1 and my visa was extended (§18 AufenthG again) for one year to complete my PhD and I got ALG1 for ten months. Recently, I got my Dr. title and I would like to extend my visa as much as possible, but as much as I understand 18 months of visa extension is only for people graduated under (§16 AufenthG). Is that correct? So, how long can I extend my visa and under which "gesetz"? Thank you very much beforehand!

You can easily extend your residence permit once you find a skilled position.

If I find a job, I will get permanent residence. Now, I would like to find out how can I extend my visa without a job offer. I keep checking for openings but I can not depend on it because I have only 2 months left with my current visa and my German level is only B1.

Short answer: 

 

All further extensions are at the discretion of your local ABH.

 

Long answer:

Let's go over the facts:

 

1. You came to Germany to work. 

2. You worked for 3 years.

3. You then received an extension to look for a job for 1 year while receiving ALGI.

4. Instead of looking for a job, you spent your time working on your PhD.

5. You've now finished your PhD, but don't have a job.

 

On what grounds do you think you should receive an extension? :wacko:
