Granting residence permits to long-term residents in other EU Member States Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Foreigners who have the legal status of a long-term resident in another EU member state are granted a residence permit if their stay in Germany is to last longer than three months. Long-term residents are foreigners who hold a residence permit designated "Permanent Residence EC" or "Permanent Residence EU" in the respective official language of the issuing EU Member State. Holders of a residence permit issued by great Britain, Denmark and Ireland are excluded, as these EU member states do not apply the corresponding EU Directive 2003/109/EC of 25.11.2003. The general conditions for issuing a German residence permit, such as a secure livelihood.B, apply without restriction. The residence permit permits gainful employment depending on the purpose (e.B. studies, employment, self-employment) of the stay. §§ 16-21 of the Residence Act are applied analogously.

Long-term resident status in another EU member state In principle, a claim to the residence permit only exists if a residence permit with the designation "Permanent Residence EC" or "Permanent Residence EU" has been issued in the respective official language in another EU member state. A permanent residence permit without this addition is regularly not sufficient. Only in exceptional cases can proof of the legal status of a long-term resident be provided by written confirmation from the authorities of the other EU member state. The residence permit can then only be issued at the discretion. Permanent residence Personal interview is required The interview should take place as far as possible with an appointment.
