I have a niederlassungserlaubnis (permament residency) in Germany. As I like travelling. I go abroad a lot for vacation purposes.
I know that staying abroad for more than 6 month in a row, makes your residency permit void. About apart from that, I couldn't see any rule about how much I need to stay in Germany in the last year.
Let's say I did the following:
Jan Stay in Germany Feb Stay in Country A (my hometown) March Stay in Country A (my hometown) April Stay in Germany May Stay in Germany June Stay in Country A (my hometown) July Stay in Country A (my hometown) Aug Stay in Country C Sep Stay in Country B Oct Stay in Germany Nov Stay in County B Dec Stay in County C Total: 4 months in Germany 4 months in Country A (my hometown) 2 months in Country B 2 months in Country C
In such a vacation plan, I'll never ever stay abroad for more than 6 months in a row.
However in total, I spend less than 6 months in Germany in a year. On the other hand, I have my employment contract, an apartment that I rent and my anmeldung. I also didn't spend more than 6 months in any other country either.
In this case what's the rules for Niederlassungserlaubnis? Do they even check these while entering the country?
