Residence permit for the purpose of employment Extension for the purpose of employment irrespective of qualification as a skilled worker

Service Description

The residence permit for employment regardless of qualification as a skilled worker is a temporary residence title. 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 authority responsible for your place of residence at least eight weeks before the expiry of the time limit.

The same requirements apply to the extension of the residence permit as to its issuance. In particular, you should be able to present an employment contract or a concrete job offer.

If you were required to attend an integration course when your residence permit was first issued, this will be taken into account when your residence permit is extended. 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 residence permit is extended for the duration of the employment contract.

The residence permit cannot be extended if this was already excluded when it was issued or the last time it was extended.
