Do you actually have an EU Blue Card Visa, i.e. does the stamp say EU Blaue Karte? Check what type of visa you had received. It is possible that you have a §4 BeschV type visa meant for managers and specialists (colloquially called Specialist Visa). This is typically what they issue to IT specialists with no university diploma or diploma that isn't directly ...

If you wish to convert your visa to a blue card then the basic requirements still need to be met, such as salary, qualifications etc. even if you are already in Germany. You should go along to your local ABH (Ausländerbehörde) and talk to them about doing this. They will then advise you what exactly they wish to see for your specific circumstances and if ...

In the case of Sweden, the agreement is that someone residing in Sweden but with income from Germany pays taxes in Sweden on that income, but the german taxes is deducted from the ones payable in Sweden. The rule is that you don't need to pay taxes two times on the same income. I suggest that you contact the Skattecenter in Köpenhavn. http://skat.dk/

I am not sure if the rules have changed but when I lived in Germany back in early 2000 you could deduct school fees for your own children up to 30% of the cost and you could deduct personal education for yourself or spouse to further educate yourself. There was no deduction for other family members at that time from your personal income tax as far as I am ...

My answer probably comes too late, but still might contain useful info for people in similar situations. From my understanding, registering your marriage in Germany is not a problem at all. After the question was asked, the same-sex marriage became completely legal in Germany. The problem is to apply for a residence permit (which starts with application ...

I'm not a lawyer, but here are my 2 cents: 1) IMHO, marriage does not depend too much on your visa / residence permit. If you want to have a marriage, it should be possible. If in Germany it is too complicated, you can probably do it in another country (Denmark? Turkey? India? Embassy?) and later recognise (strictly speaking, in some cases an official ...

Yes, you can try it. I'm not a lawyer, so cannot guarantee you anything, but at least I did from 2010 till 2013. If in doubt, you can always ask Ausländerbehörde in advance. Besides this, one can combine multiple income sources. Let's say one needs to have 800 Euro netto per month, but a part-time job only gives 650 Euro. Then one can make an extra bank ...

This is not employment however there could be profit/ loss based on the situation. As long as you invest only your own money for your own personal finances, this should be fine. what you do with your private money on private terms is none of Germany's business.

Added information from Comments: not self employed (Selbständig) or freelancer §19a (6) Sentence 1 Niederlassungserlaubnis issued against a Blue Card I believe this card was incorrectly issued due to the added date restriction and the extra text about expiration You should probably inform them of this and ask for the issuance of a new card.
