Life in Germany is versatile and diverse. If you are working or studying in Germany, you probably want to get permanent residency and eventually citizenship. But you must meet several requirements to obtain a Settlement Permit and become a permanent resident of Germany. Permanent resident permits are similar to settlement permits, and the permanent EU Residence Permit (Section 9a AufenthG (German Residence Act)) is one of these. Owners of a permanent EU residency visa are eligible to immigrate to practically all EU nations and receive a residence permit under more convenient terms.
If you fulfill the following criteria, you will receive a permanent EU residence permit
• You can legally live in Germany for at least five years;
• You can support yourself and your family financially;
• You speak German well enough;
• You are familiar with Germany’s legal, social, and cultural systems;
• To demonstrate that you have enough understanding of German culture, law, and society, you must pass the “Life in Germany” test.
• You have enough space for yourself and your family to live comfortably;
• You have made at least 60 months’ worth of statutory pension insurance payments, whether they were required or voluntary.
• The permanent EU Residence Permit cannot be obtained for several types of residence permits, such as those issued for humanitarian or educational grounds.
You must submit the following paperwork when you apply for a German permanent residency permit
• A passport.
• A fully-executed and signed application.
• Four current passport-sized photos. White backdrop, 35mm x 45mm.
• Evidence of German health coverage.
