Hi @Coop, The new law has not yet been passed so it is not yet possible to apply for it. Until it is passed, we do not know the exact details of the requirements for it but as it currently stands: People who have been in Germany with a Duldung for over 5 years will receive a one-year trial residency permit. In this time they will be expected to learn German to an adequate level and to be able to provide financially for themselves, in order to have this permit extended. As it currently stands, it is not a requirement to be financially secure or speak German in order to receive this trial permit. Here is an article about it: https://***-spiegel-de.translate.goog/politik/deutschland/innenministerin-nancy-faeser-will-geduldeten-festes-bleiberecht-ermoeglichen-a-64ce9c9f-cf34-4772-a7dc-f6801c367998?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=wapp The government wants to pass the law before the summer break of the parliament which is in July. I recommend you keep checking here and sites like Handbook Germany for updates on this. You could also already prepare an application to your local Ausländerbehörde.
