Hallo I have a question regarding application for permanent residence permit and counting of the residency durations.

I have been living in Germany since April 3, 2015. I came here on a student visa and graduated with my first degree at the end of March 2018. After that, I was on a job-hunting visa for 1.5 years under section 20 and worked during that time.

I then started my second degree in October 2019 and I am still a student and continuing my studies under the current student visa. I have already paid pension insurance contributions for more than 60 months. I would like to know, when I apply for the settlement permit, I know the the study period count as half of it.

But what about the 1.5 year job seeker visa that I had under Section 20 from April 2018 to September 2019, where I also worked.

Does this count as residence or full-time or part-time when applying for a permanent residence permit or settlement permit according to Section 9?

I am eagerly awaiting your reply,

Kind regards,

Dear Mohammadullahahmadi thank you for reaching out to us. Please note that I needed to delete your private information to protect your data.
I am sorry to hear about your difficult situation. Unfortunately, the situation in Afghanistan is very difficult and many are waiting for the admission program. Up until now there are only a few who arrived to Germany successfully. Indeed, it is very sad that a lot of people are still suffering due to bureaucratic hurdles.
Even though we would like to help, we cannot provide visas or approval of admission. We are not a registration office (“Meldestelle”) but only an information/community platform based in Germany. All the information we can provide can be accessed through our information site here: https://handbookgermany.de/fa/afghanistan-info
If you registered through Kabul Luftbrücke, they only can answer your inquiries.
For financial help you can reach out to Beporsed: https://www.beporsed-ma-ra.org/en-us#service-map
Additionally, you can find local support by UNHCR: https://help.unhcr.org/afghanistan/
Even though the German admission program proceeds, at the moment, it will continue with individuals who have already received an approval. Since you have not yet received an approval, you may consider exploring other relocation programs from different countries, which can be found on the UNHCR website: https://help.unhcr.org/afghanistan/relocation/
My deepest apologies that we cannot support you any further.
