Residence permit Granted to participate in a language course or to attend school Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Language course: A foreigner may be granted a residence permit to take part in a language course which is not intended to prepare for study and, in exceptional cases, for school attendance. The language course must be an intensive language course, i.e. there must be a daily course with at least 18 hours per week. Evening and weekend courses are not enough. The language course must be aimed at acquiring comprehensive German language skills and the duration must be limited in time from the outset. If the training objective has not yet been reached after the end of the course, the residence permit may be extended for a maximum period of 12 months. The residence permit for participation in an intensive language course is commonly granted to foreigners who only aspire to acquire German language skills if they have sufficient means of subsistence, with a declaration of commitment being sufficient. In principle, employment is not permitted. During the holidays, employment may be permitted after the approval of the Federal Employment Agency.

It may exceptionally be issued if the school attendance is z.B. takes place in the context of a temporary student exchange, it is a state or state-recognised school with an international orientation Or in the case of a school which is not or at least predominantly not financed by public funds, which prepares pupils for international degrees, diplomas from other Countries or state-recognised degrees, while ensuring a composition with pupils of different nationalities, if the foreign student's livelihood is secured by payments from the parents, e.B. and willingness to return after schooling is ensured. Exceptions are also possible for students who are nationals of Andorra, Australia, Israel, Japan, Canada, Korea, Monaco, New Zealand, San Marino, Switzerland or the USA or who, as German members of the people, are in possession of a admission notice under the Federal Persons of Persons act.
