C Permit

I have 11 months to go until I can apply for a C permit. However, it looks very likely I will be unemployed by then and claiming through the RAV.

Could I double check my understanding - do I need a permanent role to get a C permit?

I am British, based in Zug and have passed all the German B1 exams through the Geothe Institut.

Many thanks
CW

Re: C Permit

Receiving social befits could be a problem but it doesn’t completely exclude the possibility to obtain C permit. Authorities will decide. Depending on your situation it may worth to wait for the new employment.

Correcting myself, the option just below the highlighted part gives an option for unemployment cases too. So there is a chance afterall. Though if Brexit is implemented by 31.12.2020 , you would have to try under VINTA where I am sure unemployment will become a barrier.

Bei Arbeitslosigkeit Taggeldabrechnung der Arbeitslosenversicherung

Re: C Permit

Unemployment benefits are not considered social help.
