Hi nice people in this community!

Recently I got “Niederlassungserlaubnis” (permanent residence permit). 

My question is: Which countries can I visit with this permanent residence permit and without a visa? Is it possible to visit all European countries (not only the schengen countries) without a visa?

Dear @MoniLink, thank you for sharing a question with the Wefugees Community! 

With a Niederlassungserlaubnis (permanent residence permit) it is possible for you to visit all of the Schengen countries without a visa. You are allowed to stay in the Schengen country you are visiting up to 3 months (90 days) in a period of 180 days. 

For the EU-countries that are not part to the Schengen Agreement like the UK, Ireland and Cyprus it is probably necessary for you to apply for a visa. You can do this at the embassy of the regarding state.

It is just very important that besides your permanent residence permit you as well hold a passport, f. e. of your home country or some kind of equivalent because you have to be able to show identification. 

I hope this helps and feel free to get back to us with any further questions! 

All the best, Melina
