This question is an exact duplicate of:

Is my aufenhaltstitel still valid if my husband changed his employer and switched to EU blucard. Although my husbands previous employer didnt de register him and didnt cancel his aufenhaltstitel as well. And also even if I have not been de registered from germany but my address is showing unknown. What does that mean? Is my aufenhaltstitel still valid? Have I been de registered or is it that they are unable to find my address and hence showing unknown? I have been away from germany for more than a year but the consulate in my home country say my visa is valid. But now I got to know this? What does that mean?

You already asked this question here:

Aufenhaltstitel validity after staying away from Germany for more than a year?

and extensive answers were given.
Such questions should only be asked once.

  • But i got to know today that my address is showing unknown currently. Does that mean I have been de registered? – user18967 Sep 20 at 12:27
  • @Anony the Cousulate told you the Aufenthaltstitel is still valid. Where are you seeing address unknown. Only you can de-register your residence, mnot the employer. – Mark Johnson Sep 20 at 12:50
  • Even if the relocation agency takes care of the visa and all the formalities? Sorry but I just want to be sure about everything. – user18967 Sep 20 at 13:21
  • My husband asked while registering himself and they said for us they can see address unknown thats why... – user18967 Sep 20 at 13:23

    @Anony Registration tells them where in Germany you live (Residence). A Residence Permit allows you to stay in Germany. 2 different processes. When you return to Germany, you register your new address. – Mark Johnson Sep 20 at 21:35
