Hi everyone,
does someone have an idea if refugees can get a "Gewerbeschein" to organise small jobs for themselves?

I have researched it a little on google but all I found was the requirement to be accepted as "Asylant" and be allowed to work. Nothing more.
It seems "too easy" for Germany.
Thanks everyone in advance!

Hi Leo,
that's what I received as information from Arbeitsagentur.
"Erwerbstätigkeit gestattet" also means Gewerbeschein etc.
"Beschäftigung gestattet" only as employee.

But please be aware... "Gewerbeschein" is cheap. Tax declaration might by expensive. And you are forced to create one if you have a "Gewerbeschein".
