I am going to the Ausländerbehörde next week with my German marriage certificate, but I do not have an A1 German certificate. I was thinking of applying at a local school that starts August 15th, 2018 so I can get my A1 certificate. I will take the proof that I have paid and applied to a school with me to the Ausländerbehörde, but from next week until August 15th is a few weeks, and even longer to complete the classes tests and receive my A1 certificate.

My question is: will they let me stay, and give me an extra few months to complete this course and prove my basic German language ability (until about the end of September)?

  • How good is your German at the moment? A (British) friend got his citizenship without any formal certification of his German skills. Reasons this may not apply to you: a) His application was backed by the former Bürgermeister of his Gemeinde; b) he is the local choir master; c) this is rural Baden-Württemberg. Jun 11 '18 at 11:13

    So: can you edit your question to indicate your current German skills and where you are from. Jun 11 '18 at 11:14
  • I only can pretty much say my name please and thank you so not good at all. The reason I ask is becuase I married here on my tourist Visa which is only 90days I only have about 3 4 weeks left until it's up. I am Australian citizen and just want to apply for a resdince permit here in german

    Right, so you are going to need to improve your German. If you are Australian, can I suggest you need to improve the English of your question too? It's currently very hard to read. Some paragraphs would help. Jun 11 '18 at 11:19
  • Martin Bonner it seems like your not going to be any help. I am fully aware I need improve my German. I dont need information I already know thanks and as for my English i'm sure if you read my question you can understand what i am asking. Is the time from next week till August 15th 2018 to long for them to accept my application at a German school (which starts on August 15th 2018) to get my A1 CERTIFICATE as I am on a tourist Visa which is up in 3 weeks ????
