Dear @Patrifa,

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for your question.

With a residence permit according to section 25 (3) of the German Residence Act (deportation ban) you are allowed to travel abroad, given that you are holding a valid travel document (national passport or a travel document for foreigners). Please be aware that you may have to apply for a visa for destination country.  Handbook Germany explain further: "Whether you will be issued a visa depends on various factors such as your country of origin, nationality, your situation in Germany and alike, so it is difficult to predict the result of your visa application." You are right, travelling to your country of origin would risk your status in Germany.

I hope this helps and don't hesitate to get back to us with any further questions.

All the best,

@Meike, thanks so much for your response, I feel really grateful, I have my national passport with my resident permit, my question now is, if my resident permit is to be expired by January 2023, can I travel by August and come back September this year 2022, which means it will be 4 to 5 months remaining to be expired, is it safe to travel abroad within few months to expire, Africa precisely. Thanks, I wait patiently for your answer.
