Applying for a residence permit for mobile researchers

Description

You can obtain a residence permit for the purpose of research if you have a residence permit valid for the duration of the procedure from another EU Member State for the purpose of research.

The residence permit for the purpose of research for mobile researchers is a temporary residence permit. It shall be granted for the duration of the research project, but for a maximum of one year.

The residence permit entitles the holder to take up research activities at the research institution specified in the hosting agreement and to take up activities in teaching. Changes to the research project during the stay do not lead to the loss of this authorization.

If the application for the granting of the residence permit is submitted at least 30 days before the start of the stay in the Federal territory and the residence permit of the other Member State is still valid, residence and employment in the Federal territory are considered permitted for up to 180 days from entry within a period of 360 days before your application is decided.

The residence permit must be applied for at the immigration authority responsible for your place of residence. The procedure is as follows:

  • Depending on the foreigners' registration office and concerns, it may be possible to apply via the Internet. Find out whether your immigration office offers the electronic application for a residence permit.
  • If the application is only possible in person, make an appointment with the Foreigners' Registration Office. During the appointment, your application will be accepted and your proofs will be checked (bring them with you to the appointment). Your fingerprints will be taken for the production of an electronic residence permit (eAT card).
  • In the event of an electronic application, the Foreigners' Registration Office will contact you upon receipt of your online application in order to make an appointment at the Foreigners' Registration Office if necessary. During the appointment, your proofs will be checked (bring them to the appointment) and your fingerprints will be taken for the production of the electronic residence permit (eAT card).
  • If your application is granted, the Foreigners' Registration Office will arrange for the eAT card to be produced.
  • After about six to eight weeks, you can pick up the eAT card at the Foreigners' Registration Office.
  • The eAT card must always be collected in person.

Fees apply for issuing the residence permit. The timing and form of payment vary depending on the authority.

The application can also be submitted to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, which will forward your application to the competent immigration authority.
