I am living in Germany for 5 years now (complete 5 years today:-] ). I have completed my Masters in 2.5 years and started a full-time IT job after the degree. It's been 29 months that I am working as a fulltime in IT with a salary above 50K/year. I have a work permit (18 Abs.4 S.1) for all this time. I started with 41K/year and after 3 months I moved to 50K/year.
Now I am thinking of switching Job and I already got a job offer and a contract (above 50K/year). I am thinking of switching to Blue card. I do have an A1 German certificate with me so far.
- Is it possible to count these months (29 months) when I switch to Blue card so that I can get a PR in 33 months?
- If I switch to Blue card and let's suppose later I lose the job, will I only get 3 months to find another job?
I would really appreciate if someone can guide me further. Thank you.
