Hello @Mark123

Welcome to the Wefugees community and thank you for your question.

May I ask you what your current legal status is (Aufenthaltsgestattung, Duldung etc.)? It's probably the reason why you can't move from one federal state to another at the moment (due to a so-called "Wohnsitzauflage").

As Steven explained in his comment in another thread (, it's lawful for Ausländerbehörde to ask you to go back to your home country and to re-enter Germany with a proper visa afterwards. Then you can apply for a residence permit at Ausländerbehörde and move wherever you want. Sorry for the bad news.

Best regards,
