I'm from a non-EU country and I have a blue card from Germany and I'm working there. Both my passport and the blue card are going to expire at the same time in a year from now.
When my passport expires, I won't be able to renew for at least 9 months after the expiry time. That's because my country's embassy will not renew my passport unless I provided them with a specific document which I won't be able to obtain except after 9 months of the expiry of my passport.
Is there any way to renew my blue card even if my passport is already expired ? or maybe is there any way to temporarily extend my blue card for these 9 months till I actually get a new passport ?
Or maybe, is there any alternative identification document that I can apply for from the German authorities that I can use when renewing my blue card ?
Also, if the same situation happened but I've a permanent residency instead of a blue card, are there any difference ?
I'm basically trying to find a legal way to allow me to stay in Germany and work there during these 9 months where both my passport and blue card has already expired. I don't care about my ability to travel abroad during this time, only about my ability to stay in Germany and work there.
