Apply for residence permit extension for job search after vocational training

Service Description

If you have successfully completed school or company training in Germany, you can be granted a residence permit to look for a job.

The residence permit will be issued for a limited period of time directly following your previous training. An extension is possible if the maximum period of 12 months was not utilized when the permit was first issued. If you do not find a job during this period, an extension is also excluded. You are then obliged to leave the Federal territory.

The aim of the search can also be self-employment. The residence permit allows unrestricted gainful employment.
