Applying for an extension of the residence permit in the case of a deportation ban

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Your residence permit was issued for at least one year. It can be extended if the ban on deportation and the other conditions for issuance are met.

You must urgently ensure that you submit an application for the extension or issuance of another residence title (e.g. a settlement permit) before the expiry of the period of validity of your residence title.

If the application is submitted in good time, i.e. before the expiry of the time limit, the further residence is deemed to be permitted until the decision of the Aliens Department with all subsequent effects (e.g. the entitlement to pursue gainful employment). A late application (after the end of the time limit stated in the residence title) can result in considerable legal disadvantages.


Process flow

As a rule, you must apply for the extension of your residence title in person - well in advance of the expiry of your residence title - at your competent aliens' registration office.

Arrange an appointment with your local aliens' registration office. You can also find information about the application procedure and which documents you have to submit in which form on the respective website of the Foreigners' Registration Office.

If your application is approved, the Aliens' Registration Office will commission the Bundesdruckerei to produce the electronic residence permit (eAT) with a new validity date.

For information on the duration of the procedure until the residence title is issued, please contact the competent Aliens' Registration Office.
