Residence permit Granted to long-term residents in other EU Member States Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Foreigners who have the status of long-term resident in another EU Member State are granted a residence permit if the stay in the Federal Republic of Germany is to last longer than three months. Long-term residents are foreigners who hold a residence permit bearing the designation "Permanent Residence-EC" or "Permanent Residence-EU" in the official language of the issuing EU Member State. The exceptions are holders of a residence permit issued by great Britain, Denmark and Ireland, as these EU Member States do not apply the relevant EU Directive 2003/109/EC of 25.11.2003. The general conditions for granting a German residence permit, such as a secure living wage, apply without restriction. The residence permit permits employment depending on the purpose of the stay (e.g. study, employment, self-employment). Sections 16-21 of the Residence Act are applied in the same way.

Preconditions
Long-term resident status in another EU Member State In principle, a residence permit is only granted 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 insufficient. Only in exceptional cases can proof of the 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 by discretion. Fixed residence Personal speaking is required The preliminary hearing should preferably be made by appointment.
