1. Ukrainian citizen can move to Germany without visa for 90 days (§ 40 Ordinance Governing Residence, Art. 20 Schengen Convention). Immigration department Berlin will announce on Monday a general decree that will extend the period for another 90 days. Other immigration departments will certainly follow as it is a reaction to an ordinance by the Federal ministry of interior (not yet published). During the extension employment should be permitted (my opinion).
2. No written conformation so far but ministry of interior of Brandenburg announced to its federal state's immigration departments that Ukrainian citizen will have the right to obtain a humanitarian residence permit under the terms of § 24 Residence Act. Which is so far interesting as the regulation requires EU council decision.
3. Several immigration departments throughout the country already signalized they will handle exemptions from the obligation of visa procedures generously (§ 5 II 2 Residence Act). Despite the fact that humanitarian residence permits shall be granted to Ukrainian citizen, § 24 Residence Act allows the government to decide the place of residency of individuals. Though, obtaining a regular residence permit seems at first glance more cumbersome it allows the individual to decide its place of residency.
(From here on common information:)
4. Though regular (employment) immigration law is mostly governed by the fact that the applicant must be an acknowledged professional, § 6 Ordinance on the employment of Foreigners e. g. allows individuals with three years of IT working experience to file an application for employment residence permit.
5. I also would like to mention our country's very well dual education system which allows to file for a residence permit for education purposes (§ 16a Immigration Act).
6. FAMILY UNIFICATION should be possible according to all the aforementioned rights of residency. Reunification of parents to adult Ukrainians with residence permit should be possible though the law requires exceptional hard circumstances (§ 36 Immigration Act).
7. Asylum law (AsylG) - subsidiary protection can be obtained as Ukrainians face serious individual threat to their life or physical integrity.
We must stay together strong during these hard times!
