I worked in Germany for 4 years on Blue Card, paying taxes etc, didn't get PR (Niederlassungserlaubnis), found new job in UK, de-registered and left the country for 2 years. Blue Card naturally expired as >5years passed since.

Now wanna return to Germany, I already found a job there and can get work visa.

As I've already contributed taxes for 33 months, can I immediately apply for PR/Niederlassungserlaubnis after I come to Germany on new work visa?

  • This will depend on whether your new employment qualifies for a Blue Card. Nov 21, 2022 at 5:52
  • Thank you, so let's suppose that it does qualify for a Blue Card, then an answer to my question is yes?

Yes, you must have a Blue Card to be eligable for the 33 months. Apply for a Versicherungsverlauf that shows this (Versicherungsverlauf - Online-Dienste der Deutschen Rentenversicherung). Take that with you, after your arrival in Germany, when you apply for the residence permit card. They should then issue a Niederlassungserlaubnis instead.
