Residence permit application for extension in case of pronounced practical professional knowledge

Service Description

The residence permit for the pursuit of employment with distinctive practical vocational knowledge was issued for a limited period of time. You can apply for the extension of the residence permit if your employment is to be continued beyond the period of validity of your residence permit.

Apply for the extension of your residence permit at the Foreigners' Registration Office responsible for your place of residence at least eight weeks before the expiry of the time limit.

The same requirements apply for the extension as for the issuance. In particular, you should continue to work in the IT industry and be able to demonstrate a certain salary.

When your residence permit was first issued, the Federal Employment Agency gave its approval. If the validity of the consent has expired, it must be granted again for the extension of your residence permit.

Under certain circumstances, you were required to attend an integration course when your residence permit was first issued. If this is the case, this must be taken into account when extending your residence permit. If you have not yet taken part in an integration course, the Foreigners' Registration Office may reject your application for an extension of your residence permit. If you have not yet completed the integration course, your residence permit will generally only be extended for one year at a time until you successfully complete the course or provide proof that you have been integrated into social life in some other way.

In the case of an extension, your residence permit will be limited again. The duration of the time limit depends on the duration of your employment contract or the period of validity of the approval of the Federal Employment Agency.

As a rule, the residence permit cannot be extended if this was already ruled out when the residence permit was issued or last extended.
