I wanted to ask a question for a friend of mine.He‘s been living in Germany for nine years and has a Duldung for whole time I guess.And he has A1 German course.My question is

1-Is he eligible for normal residence permit ?

2-Or he can apply for a Niederlassungserlaubnis?

3-Can he become German as he is 9 years in Germany?

He is a very good friend of mine and I wants to help him.should he go for a german course or can he just simply apply for German passport?

I would be really helpful

Dear @Ronns,

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us for your friend. 

Unfortunately, while holding a so-called “Duldung” (temporary suspension of the deportation), a person will not be eligible for permanent residence permit or qualify to get the German citizenship.

Whether your friend might be able to obtain a temporary residence permit depends on his individual conditions (his work situation etc).

Did you already learn about the new law in preparation (which is neither finally drafted nor implemented yet) - the so-called “Chancen-Aufenthaltsrecht”. Please follow the link for more information on this.

Hopefully this law will introduced soon and maybe it’s also a perspective for your friend.

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