I have a German BlueCard (for the last 2 months) which I got at city X, which is one of my company's several locations. Now my company HQ is in city Y (both X and Y are inside Germany, different states) - will this affect my German BlueCard? The job, position, salary remain exactly same with no changes whatsoever.

    Does this answer your question? Updating address in Blue Card - Germany – Andrey Sapegin Apr 24 at 21:48
  • No, as the company has not moved, they are moving me from location A to B. – Jishan Apr 25 at 1:37
  • Yes, then if only you moved to another city, this question is really a duplicate of the one I cited. As already answered there, you just need to register at the corresponding Bürgeramt after moving to the new address. Nothing else is needed. If one decides to resettle within Germany (i.e., to avoid drive/travel from city X to city Y), then, disregarding of immigration status, one needs to register at the new flat within 2 weeks after starting living there. De-registration from the old flat and updating address on the Blue Card can be done there simultaneously. – Andrey Sapegin Apr 25 at 10:47

Since your employer has not changed, this will not effect the BlueCard.

In the first 2 years you need permission only when changing the employer. The permit is valid for the country, only the responsible office changes.

You could send the Immigration office a letter from your company stating that you are being transferred to the new location. With that they would know that nothing else has changed.

Your file will probably just be transferred from the former office, who is no longer responsible for you once you have registered in the new state (or city).

  • There is no need to report anything to the immigration office. If one changes his/her address, he/she should register at that new address and the immigration office will be automatically notified. Same for the transfer of the file from the former city. – Andrey Sapegin Apr 24 at 21:50

    @AndreySapegin The change of address of the employer should be reported so that their files are up to date - which the Immigration office may not know about. This advice stands despite your downvote. – Mark Johnson Apr 24 at 22:20
  • Just to clarify the company has not moved, they are sending me from location A to B. – Jishan Apr 25 at 1:35

    @Jishan In the first 2 years you need permission only when changing the employer. The permit is valid for the country, only the responsible office changes. Since the address of the employer has not changed, they will still have the same contact information. They may ask if you have changed your employer, which a ltter from the employer stating you have been transferred would resolve. – Mark Johnson Apr 25 at 3:34
