I am a non-EU citizen. I have completed my master studies from a recognised German University and later worked in Germany for 3 years. Among the 3 years of work permit visa in Germany, I had Blue card for 18 months. And I possess German B1 level language skills certificate (TELC).
Last year in November I moved to Netherlands to work for a Dutch Company. I therefore terminated my German Blue card and obtained a new blue card in Netherlands.
In summer I lost my job in the Netherlands. Now I have a job offer from a German company which satisfies the Blue card salary requirement. So, I want to move back to Germany and reapply for Blue card in Germany.
My question is : With Dutch residence permit can I move to Germany and apply for blue card at the local foreign office in Germany. Or do I need to first apply for German temporary entry visa from Netherlands. And once I have this temporary visa then only I can move to Germany and apply for Blue card?
This article states- " in Germany, third-country nationals who hold a long-term residence permit in another Member State and who demonstrate adequate means of subsistence and health insurance are entitled to a German long-term residence permit without the need for further verification that the conditions of recognising the long-term resident status were met in the first Member State" - read last line on page 23.
