welcome back to Wefugees. Thanks for reaching out to us again. We hope you are doing well?
I'm not an expert, so I'll link @meike here again, but I did a little research.
First of all, yes, according to my research it is in principle possible for you with 25b to get German citizenship.
Unfortunately, we can not make a generally valid statement here, because each case is examined individually.
- You have a permanent residence
- you have been living in Germany for a long time
- 8 years or
- 7 years with completed integration course or
- 6 years with German language skills better than level B1 or
- 3 years if you have been married to a German or have entered into a civil partnership with a German for at least two years
- If your wife or husband or your children apply together with you, even shorter deadlines are valid.
3. Your identity and nationality have been clarified.
4. You have committed yourself to the Grundgesetz
5. You do not receive unemployment benefit II or social welfare benefits (you and your family do not receive benefits from the job center or social welfare office)
6. You are willing to give up your previous nationality (exceptions are possible, e.g. for citizens of the EU and Switzerland or recognized refugees) more information can be found here: https://***.auswaertiges-amt.de/en/visa-service/konsularisches/-/229970
7. You have no criminal record
8. You speak German (You have oral and written German skills at least at level B1)
9. passed Einbürgerungstest, or school graduation or study
During a first consultation you will then receive further information as well as an application form.The application is not free and will cost some money.
