Residence Permit

The residence permit is valid for a limited period of time. You can apply for a residence permit for the following reasons: 

  • Training
  • Employment
  • Humanitarian, international or political reasons
  • Family-related reasons
Note: In exceptional cases, a residence permit may also be granted for a purpose of stay not specified in the German Residence Act.

You may only work in Germany if this is clearly noted on your residence permit. 

A residence permit can be extended. This also takes into account whether you have participated on an integration course. You will receive an electronic residence permit or a sticker in your passport.
