Make a declaration of commitment

Description

By submitting a declaration of commitment, a third person undertakes to the State to pay for the costs of a foreigner's livelihood in order to help him to stay in Germany, provided that he himself does not have sufficient resources. This is regularly associated with the exit or, if necessary, deportation costs. The submission of a declaration of commitment is dispensable if the foreigner (guest) is able to secure his livelihood himself and proves this in the respective embassy.

In the event of an obligation, all public funds that must be spent on the foreigner's livelihood, including the provision of housing and care in the event of illness and long-term care, must be reimbursed.

A declaration of commitment can be made by natural and legal persons (e.g. companies, charitable associations). The submission of the declaration of commitment by an authorised person is not permitted. The personal interview of the guarantor is required.

The declaration of commitment does not constitute an obligation towards the invited foreigner. The declaration of commitment allows public authorities to make financial use of you (as the guarantor) if, because of the foreigner's residence, public funds must be used that are not based on contributions (for example, social assistance costs, but not pensions or unemployment benefits if the foreigner has paid contributions for them).

As a rule, it can be assumed that the VE must be presented to the German missions abroad responsible for issuing a visa. The same applies in the event of a legally possible visa extension by the immigration authority for a new VE to be submitted.

The person declaring the commitment (as a natural person) must be registered with his main residence in Halle (Saale) – a legal person must be resident in Halle (Saale).

Scope:
In principle, the VE must be issued not only for visits, but also for intended longer-term stays, provided that securing one's livelihood from one's own resources is a prerequisite for granting the right of residence and the foreigner cannot fulfil this condition himself.

Duration of stay:
In principle, the CA is issued for the entire duration of the stay and also extends to periods of illegal residence, including the duration of any deportation.

Cost recovery:
By submitting the aforementioned declaration, the inviter/declaration of commitment undertakes to pay for all costs incurred by the stay of the foreign public guest. He/she must therefore reimburse all public funds used to cover the costs incurred.

In particular, the following costs incurred by public funds shall be reimbursed:

  • for the foreigner's subsistence, including
  • the supply of housing
  • care in the event of illness and long-term care, even if the expenses are based on a statutory claim of the foreign person
  • resulting from the removal, push-back or rejection of the foreign person, and
  • Departure costs of the foreign person

The extent of liability for the costs pursuant to § 67 paragraphs 1 and 2 AufenthG as well as the limitation period for reimbursement claims is based on the provisions of § 70 AufenthG.

When submitting the VE, it is recommended to have the financial capacity of the invitee/declaration of commitment checked by the Foreigners' Registration Office. This serves as an aid to the German mission abroad as to whether a visa can be issued by the mission abroad. In this case, the documents described above must be submitted. In this context, explicit reference is made to the criminal liability of incorrect or incomplete information.

However, the declaration of commitment does not constitute an obligation towards the invited foreign person.

Health insurance coverage:
Attention is drawn to the existence of sufficient health insurance cover, which is ultimately checked by the German mission abroad.

Visa application procedure:
The declaration of commitment completed by the Foreigners' Registration Office of the City of Halle (Saale) is usually handed over to the invite/declaration of commitment in the original for forwarding to the foreign guest. The foreign guest must submit the original and a copy thereof to the responsible German mission abroad when applying for a visa.
The original will be returned to the guest and must carry it with him upon entry.
