I moved to Germany on a job seeker visa D national type for 6 months.
I found a job and had a job contract in my profession, i couldn't apply for a residence or work permit right away because i didn't have anmeldung by that time, 2 weeks later i prepared all required documents and application, got a rental agreement and did anmeldung and went to the auslanderbehorde in Berlin to apply, i was already working for 2 weeks and have received half month salary minus Taxes and insurance, ( i didn't receive what was expected and i assume that deduction is for taxes and health insurance )

When reach the auslanderbehorde i was taken to an office and told i need to leave Germany because i was not supposed to start working on a job seeker visa.

The officer inform me i won't have any ban and i can apply for a working visa and come back.

Can i appeal ?
What are my chances of coming back to Germany ?

Dear @Astros88

Welcome to the Wefugees community and sorry for the rather late reply. 

Unfortunately, I am not much experienced with working visas and residence permits for work purposes. Maybe one of our experts, as @mbe-on_Zsigó or @mbeon-Christine, can give you more information. 

What is the current situation, any updates? 

All the best,

Hello together,

there is a good chance to receive a work visa, if you submit your working contract to the embassy. But one major problem remain - many embassies will give you an appointment only after (6, 11 13 or so) months. So you should inform your company that this procedure will take some time.

All the best,
