Schlun & Elseven is an internationally active law firm based in Germany whose primary focus is immigration law. For many years, we have been advising clients from all over the world – private individuals and corporations alike – in a wide-range of immigration matters, with a special focus on business immigration. On this website you will find what we can do for you
One of the services we provide is advice on residence permits and how you can legally reside in Germany. There are several ways in which citizens from non-EU Member States can obtain a residence permit in Germany. For example, business investors and self-employed persons can obtain a residence permit under § 21 of the AufenthG (German Residence Act) by acquiring or establishing a company.
Highly qualified workers can obtain a residence permit under § 19 AufenthG and § 19a AufenthG. You can learn more about the services we offer by clicking on the relevant tab above.
We understand that our clients prefer to receive advice in their own language, due to the high level of complexity and detail inherent in immigration legislation. Therefore, our attorneys are fluent in German, English, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Portuguese, and Arabic. This ensures that we will be able to communicate smoothly. Please feel free to contact us for a consultation or to approach us with any questions or concerns you may have.
