This question should be raised, especially due to the fact that the provision regulating the application was limited to 1 August 2016 and applications can only submitted until then. The government determined with the deletion of that time limit, that the provision is not misused by the applicant that there are no objections against further usage. However, many foreigners did not know anything about the provision.
Content and conditions of the residence permit
First of all, a residence permit allows the foreigner to stay for six months in Germany. In this period of time he/she is allowed to search for a job.
Favored are qualified workers and persons having already the working permit for a federal territory, whose position was terminated without further employment.
In addition to the granting prerequisites, for example the assessment of sufficient means of subsistence, the applicant owners must have a German, another recognized or equivalent degree.
Practice has shown, that the recognition of a degree and the assessment of comparability to a German degree regularly causes problems. Therefore, it is recommended to represent yourself by an experienced lawyer during the application process.
The represented residence permit is not suitable for every applicant. Especially foreign graduates of German universities, who are not experienced on the labor market, benefit from favorable provisions.
A consultation with a lawyer aims to listen to the clients, clarify them about their situation and demonstrate new opportunities.
