After entering the country, third-country nationals need to apply for a residence permit in order to stay in Germany for prolonged periods.
Since 2012, highly educated professionals can be issued a special residence permit: the EU Blue Card.
Unlike the residence permit, the settlement permit and the EU long-term residence permit are unlimited residence documents.
The electronic residence permit contains information about your residence permit as well as personal information.
If you are a citizen from a country outside the European Union wishing to migrate to a country inside the European Union, then also visit the EU Immigration Portal.
