I got only once as schwarzfahren because I had forgot my pocket money with everything.
then the controller took my data and gave me the fine which I payed directly next day in the office.

then after a week I got a letter from the police as I did not pay, However I called them and they were so helpful and told me to sent the receipt that I payed the fine and they will close the case.

after a while I had a letter from the city attorny that I had no case.
So do you think that would cause any problems in the future
How to fix it if possible and If I wanted to renew my residence permit after 2 years would they reject if I moved to another city

Thank you very much for your request.

I am a consultant at mbeon and the migration consultancy.

If you paid the fine, there should be no further consequences for you.

Only if penalties are not paid can difficulties and consequences arise.

Enclosed some links with information about "Schwarzfahren"

I hope I was able to answer your questions. You are welcome to ask further questions or visit a counselling centre near you.

Friendly greetings

Dear @Mazen

Thank you for reaching out to the Wefugees Community! 

Based on the information you shared, I would not see any problems coming up in the future. You mentioned, that you even received a letter confirming, that there is no open case. Only if you are sentenced in court it can have consequences (from a certain degree of penalty) for the issuing and extension of your residence permit. 

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

All the best,
