Information session holds on residence permit scheme for asylum-seekers in Berlin

An information event about the Opportunity Residence Act (Chancen-Aufenthaltsrecht), a law that provides for the grant of regular residence permit to tolerated asylum-seekers in Germany, will take place in Berlin on Tuesday 18 April. Tolerated persons are actually obliged to leave the country, but cannot be deported for personal reasons or because of the situation in their countries of origin.

Under the legislation, which has been in force since 31 December 2022, Tolerated persons in Germany who have been living in Germany for five years or more are to receive a residence permit “on probation”.

The information session, organised by GIZ gGmbH, a non-profit social organisation, will inform in details and in English language about the requirements for obtaining the right of residence.

Participants can also find out at the event, holding in collaboration with the social development organisation gGAIDI (German-African Initiative for Development and Integration), what they need to bear in mind once you have been granted the right of residence.

Information on how to apply for the right of residence will be provided and those interested will be helped to fill the forms at the event.

Date: Tuesday, 18 April 2023 from 4.30pm – 6.30pm

Venue: Willkommen-in-Arbeit-Büro Spandau,
GIZ gGmbH, Jüdenstrasse 30, 13597 Berlin Spandau
(5 minutes’ walk from the Spandau Rathaus)

Participants have to register to attend the event.
