Someone who's lived in the EU specifically in Germany for 3 years with Bluecard and contributed to the system with taxes and pension, if they move to a non EU state & decide to come back to EU country in this case, Germany after 3-4 years
- Would they've to start from scratch in terms of getting permanent residency in the EU? Germany has 3 years time for getting permanent residency card (this is not equivalent to citizenship)
- If not, will the 3 years they spent in the EU would be counted in their favor after they return to EU and will resume where they left off in terms of permanent residency &/or citizenship?
- What other things should one look out for if one plans to move back to EU after a few years?
Please share some insights/info and your experience if you've been through this process?
