Mobility with an EU long-term residence permit

Mobility with an EU long-term residence permit

An EU long-term residence permit enables you to enjoy the legal benefits of long-term resident status and have extended mobility rights in other EU Member States.

To qualify for such benefits, you must have been resident in an EU Member State for five years without interruption and have received an EU long-term residence permit there. You will then enjoy relaxed conditions for settlement in almost all other EU Member States (apart from Ireland and Denmark). The Directive was already not applicable to the United Kingdom before its withdrawal from the EU.

Entering another Member State with an EU long-term residence permit issued in Germany

As a matter of principle, an EU long-term residence permit issued in Germany entitles you to work, study or undergo training in other EU Member States. Some EU Member States do however carry out an assessment of the labour market before allowing you to work. The Member State concerned will provide information on the precise rules and regulations.

If you have been resident in another Member State for five years, you can also apply for an EU long-term residence permit in the country concerned. In this case, the EU long-term residence permit issued in Germany will be revoked, and it will expire automatically after six years at the latest.

After you have been resident in Germany for five years, you can apply for an EU long-term residence permit in Germany. The EU long-term residence permit issued in the first Member State will then expire.
