Apply for an extension of the residence permit to carry out a qualification measure

Description

The residence permit to carry out a qualification measure is a temporary residence title. You can apply for an extension of the residence permit if the qualification measure(s) has/have not yet compensated for the identified deficits of foreign qualification, e.g. because you have to repeat an examination or the examinations are preceded by long waiting periods.

The same requirements apply to the extension of the residence permit for the purpose of carrying out a qualification measure as to the granting of the residence permit. In particular, your livelihood should be secured for the entire duration of the qualification measure(s).

In the case of an extension, your residence permit will be limited again. The residence permit for the purpose of carrying out a qualification measure can be extended by six months. However, the total duration of stay for the purpose of carrying out the qualification measures may not exceed two years.

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

  • There is no interest in deportation against you.
