Corona – Expiry of residence permit or blue card while staying outside Germany

Are you a holder of a German residence document (residence permit, EU blue card, etc.) that will expire soon, have you left Germany some time ago and cannot return to Germany before the residence document expires due to entry restrictions?

In this case, it is important that you apply for the extension of your residence address at the local immigration office in Germany before your current residence address expires. The immigration office in your city of residence is also responsible for you during your stay outside Germany.

If the extension is requested in time, it will have a fictitious effect according to Section 81(4) of the Residence Act. This means that your previous residence permit or EU Blue Card is valid until the decision of the Migration Office. The Immigration Office can then issue a dummy certificate that will allow you to enter Germany even after your residence permit has expired.

You can also apply to extend your residence document if you are not currently in Germany. All you have to do is submit an informal application via email, fax or letter stating your intention to extend your residence address. It is important that you prove that the immigration office has received the application.

We are happy to take care of the application for you and make sure you get a fake certificate. You can then ensure that the application has been submitted correctly and that your return to Germany is guaranteed. This allows you to focus on things that are relevant in the moment. If desired, we, of course, advise and accompany you throughout the entire residence law procedure.

We will continue to be there for you by phone, email and video conference. Our team keeps itself informed daily on the current actions of the authorities.
