Can I work outside Germany ? submitted by Rebiwar in Work / legal requirements


Is there any information if I can work outside the EU in Turkey or Kurdistan, Iraq ?

Ps. I have the permit of one year residency ?



Hi @marcel, could you help @rebiwar out perhaps?

Hi @rebiwar. Your question is not quite clear yet to me: you are now in Germany with a residence permit but you want to travel abroad now to work there?
Marcel (Lawyer/Rechtsanwalt)
@Marcel Yes, exactly.
Well, generally speaking, you may leave the Country for up to 6 months (you can apply for an extension if you work for instance as a development aid worker).
Marcel (Lawyer/Rechtsanwalt)
But if you travel to Turkey and especially Kurdistan, Iraq the German authorities may view this as a sign that you are not in danger there and (if you came from the Country you are returning to) revoke your residence Permit. At least there is a risk.
Marcel (Lawyer/Rechtsanwalt)
Further, you may have a "Wohnsitzauflage" in your residency permit. In that case travelling abroad is further complicated.
Marcel (Lawyer/Rechtsanwalt)
You should have travel documents to-reenter Germany as well. I suppose you have been given a "blauer Pass" (blue passport)? Further, you will probably Need a visa to travel to these countries
Marcel (Lawyer/Rechtsanwalt)
Besides: you are not allowed to work in the EU either, only to stay there for up to 3 months
