Permanent residence permit for a long-term EU residence

This permanent residence permit (Sect. 9b AufenthG) requires almost the same preconditions as the permanent residence permit according to Sect. 9 AufenthG. However, it not only entitles you to unlimited national residence, but also facilitates your mobility within the EU.

As the holder of this residence permit, you have the right to obtain a temporary residence permit if you move to another European member state.

Please note:

Sect. 9b AufenthG specifically regulates which periods of residence are credited towards the required five years of uninterrupted residence in Germany. Here too, only half of the time spent studying and undergoing professional training with the corresponding residence permit is taken into account, for example.
