German Business Immigration

At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, we are an internationally active law firm based in Germany. Our primary field of focus is immigration law. On this front, we have been advising clients from all over the world – private individuals and corporations alike – for many years in a wide-range of immigration matters. With our corporate clients we have had a special focus on business immigration – from assistance with the appropriate visas to advice on relocation to Germany and support with German corporate legal requirements . On this website you will find out how our services can benefit 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 German residence permit. For example, it is possible for business investors and self-employed persons to obtain a residence permit under § 21 of the AufenthG (German Residence Act) by acquiring or by establishing a company in Germany. Whereas for highly-qualified workers they can obtain a residence permit under § 19 AufenthG and § 19a AufenthG.

When it comes to the availing of such visas, there are several steps that have to be gone through before they are awarded. It is here where having an experienced partner is of great benefit. Our lawyers regularly help our many clients to avail of suitable visas. Assisting them to fulfil the necessary requirements while bearing in mind the relevant deadlines is what we do on a daily basis. You can learn more about the services we offer by clicking on the relevant tab above.

As an internationally-oriented law firm, 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 English, Spanish, Turkish, Portuguese, and Arabic as well as German. This ensures that we will be able to communicate smoothly and not get lost in translation. Please feel free to contact us directly for a consultation or to approach us with any questions or concerns you may have.
