I need some help urgently.
I am from Mauritius and I have a permanent job confirmed in Dusseldorf, Germany. I have contract and confirmation letter from the company and some other documents from it.
I came to London for 1 week and, today, I travelled to Dusseldorf but I was refused access because I do not have a work permit.
I was deported back to London and I was allowed to enter the country.
I was supposed to have my appointment at the German foreign office this Friday.
Normally, I do not need a visa to enter Germany if my purpose is for tourism. If I entered as a tourist, I would be able to go to the foreign office and do all the paperwork for the work visa, as I understood it. I didn't know this.
Now, as I was refused access, there is a stamp on my passport that looks like this (a cross on the stamp).
Has anyone ever encountered this? Can I make application for my visa from London or should I go back to my home country?
Will I still be able to enter Germany with this stamp on my passport? I really don't know what to do.
