Almost 10 months ago, I got my blue card and came to Germany to work as a software architect with a very good salary (+ 100k EU) and started my journey in a new city. I'm considering working for myself as a freelancer to have more autonomy and for sure to make more money.
On my blue card, it's mentioned: "Selbständige Tätigkeit gestattet" which means I'm eligible to be self-employed as well.
- Is that possible to leave my current job and turn into a freelancer?
- if the above answer is Yes, I'm considering to have my registration inside Germany (Anmeldung) for my taxes, pension and bank account and start traveling the world which was always my dream. This means I'm not going to be inside of Germany (or EU nations generally) not more than few weeks every 3-4 months. If I pay all of my taxes and pension contributions, is that important I physically be inside of Germany?
- If the above answer is Yes, I'm considering to get my permanent residency after 21 months with a B1 german certificate considering I started to learn Germany from the time I was younger. If I pay my taxes as a freelancer over the next 11 months (I've already paid taxes, pension, health insurance for 10 months), Can I still apply for a PR or not?
