Hello All,

I am living as refugee in Germany since one and half years and I am working since one year in a company on full time and now I offered unlimited job contract from the company in which I am working .
My question is regarding changing the asylum status into work contract . Can any one give me an information that is it possible to change the asylum status Into work visa ? Or not

Please let me know the options I will be very thankful to you.

Kind Regards

Hello @Khan,

I am sorry to say that you can't change your status as intended.
If I remember correctly your home country is Pakistan. For countries without special regulations the Federal Foreign Office says about accessing the German labour market: "All other foreign nationals must apply for a work visa from their local German mission before coming to Germany". See details here: https://goo.gl/2o96Wr

Kind regards
