I'm a non-EU citizen with a Blue Card (HR job) and my contract ends in 6 months (they have budget problems). I started looking for different jobs, but I think that the salary of some jobs that I find interesting may be slightly under the Blue Card minimum requirement. If I get one of these jobs, could I apply for the Aufenthaltstitel instead of the Blue Card? Does this reduce the possibility of the permit being approved?
- I studied a master's in Germany
- My current contract is for 2 years. For the first 10 months I worked using the job-seeking visa you get after your studies, and I changed to the Blue Card 8 months ago.
- If I stay in my current job until the end of my contract, I would fulfill the requirements for the permanent residence, except for the "secure subsistence" which I have read means to have a contract valid for the near future or another income source (savings not counting); this is why I want to change jobs asap, to have a longer contract.
