How long before expiry can I apply for a B permit renewal

I am a EU national and my B permit expires at the end of the month. On the application form I received by post, it says that one should apply for an extension no later than 2 weeks before expiry.

Has anyone applied for a renewal less than 2 weeks before expiry? For example 1 week before expiry...

Thanks

Don't know, but obviously the later the renewal request is put in the later you will get a new permit back because of the processing time. Get it in the post or drop it into the office tomorrow.

I did ours about 3 weeks before the expiry date when renewing.

The earliest you can submit is 3 months before expiration. I never waited till the very end, but I think you are still ok to submit it any day before expiration. But you definitely can get into some trouble if you let it expire: a colleague of mine was fined when he forgot to apply for extension and his permit expired.

They might be flexible regarding the deadline. I had recently a similar concern, as I would most probably miss the deadline to visit the Gemeinde. My company suggested me contacting the Gemeinde (Kreisbüro) either via e-mail,telephone or in person to say, without mentioning confusing details, something like the following: "My documents are not complete yet, and as I do not want to hand in an incomplete application for extension, I would need an extension of deadline."

It worked, and they offered me two weeks of extension to hand in my forms and documents. In case you need, you might also try to ask directly for an extension.

I've done it with less than 2 weeks. No problem. The permit card arrived after the old one expired, 1 week later. At immigration I would say it was in the mail. They would let me through.
