Dear All,

Few days ago I got my positive Bescheid from Bundesamt about my case.
After that I applied for new identity card and passport.
Also, I got a letter from Rathaus to introduce myself to Job center.

I have two questions:

1- Is it posible to visit London via German blue passport without Visa?
2- I'm living in small village in Niedersachsen, and want to relocate to Hannover. Because I can't find job opportunity in my current town. I'm a software engineer. What should I do?

Thanks in advance,
Maya

Hello @Maya

welcome to our community!

1) please check out these threads here on Wefugees about travelling with blue passport:

https://www.wefugees.de/k/questions/1653

https://www.wefugees.de/k/questions/2024

Since Great Britain is not a visa-free country listed in the threads linked above, you need a visa to visit GB/London.

2) The refugee council of Niedersachsen states the following:

Every refugee that got a positive Bescheid from BAMF after 01.01.2016 has to stay in the federal state that s/he was allocated to for three years. But there is no obligation to stay in a certain city in Niedersachsen.

It looks like you are free to move from your small town to Hannover.

I hope this answer is helpful to you.

Best regards,
