Apply for an extension of the residence permit to work in a civil servant's relationship with a German employer

Description

If you are in a civil service relationship with a German employer and are in Germany to perform official duties, you usually have a temporary residence permit. You can apply for the renewal of your residence permit if the validity of your residence permit ends and you wish to continue your service in Germany.

You should apply to the immigration authority responsible for your residence no later than eight weeks before the end of the time limit.

The conditions for renewal shall be the same as for the grant. This means that you are still in a civil service relationship with a German employer and would like to stay in Germany to fulfil your duties.

In the event of renewal, your residence permit will be limited again. The duration of the time limit depends on the planned duration of your service.

The federal employment agency does not need to participate in the renewal of your residence permit.

You may have been required to take an integration course when you first issued your residence permit. If this is the case, this must be taken into account when renewing your residence permit. If you have not yet taken part in an integration course, the immigration authority may reject your application for renewal of your residence permit. If you have not yet completed the integration course, the residence permit will in principle only be extended for one year at a time until you successfully complete it or prove that your integration into social and social life has taken place elsewhere.

If you have been in possession of a residence permit for three years to perform official duties with a German employer, you are entitled to a permanent residence permit (residence permit). This does not include the requirement to have paid contributions to the statutory pension insurance for at least 60 months or to have to prove expenses for entitlement to comparable benefits.

If you have a civil service relationship with a German employer and have a residence permit to perform official duties in the Federal Territory, you can apply for the extension of your residence permit.

The renewal of your residence permit must be requested from the immigration authority responsible for your residence. The procedure is as follows:

  • Depending on the immigration authority and concerns, it may be possible to apply via the Internet. Find out if your immigration authority offers the electronic application for a residence permit.
    In the event of an electronic application, the immigration authority will contact you after receipt of your application in order to arrange an appointment at the immigration office. During the appointment, your evidence will be checked (bring it with you to the appointment).
  • If the application is only possible in person, make an appointment with the immigration authority.
    During the appointment, your application will be accepted and your evidence will be checked (bring it with you to the appointment).
  • For the renewal of the electronic residence permit (eAT card), your fingerprints will be taken at the immigration office.
  • After about six to eight weeks, you can pick up the eAT card from the immigration office. In principle, the collection must be done in person.
  • Fees apply for the renewal of the residence permit. The timing and form of payment vary depending on the authority.

Contact the immigration authority.

  • You have a recognised and valid passport or passport replacement.
  • There is no interest in expulsion against you.
