The blue card is a residence permit for certain highly qualified professionals. There are various requirements in terms qualification and annual salary. We can explain what those requirements are, assess them, help establishing their evidence and represent in all relevant procedures.
Citizens of certain countries who do not require national visa (e.g. US citizens) would still need a residence permit, if they want to stay longer than their visa free period. The grounds for residence permits are for example studies, work or family reunification. I advise clients in respect of the requirements and the procedure.
VISA (SCHENGEN & NATIONAL)
German immigration law requires visa from citizens of certain countries to enter Germany or at least to stay here longer. Visa are issued by embassies or consulates. Short-term stays up to 90 days are governed by the rules of the Schengen Akquis, whereas longer stays require so called national visa. We help with both kinds.
EU LAW & CITIZENSHIP
EU citizens and their family members may stay in Germany because of the freedom of movement. However, there are various conditions, which I can explain and discuss with my clients.
When foreigners have lived for a number of years in Germany, they might want to apply for German citizenship. I consult in those questions and represent my clients in front of the authorities.
MY VISION AND EXPERTISE
II want to use my legal skills, my international experience and my personal network to create value and to help others.
I studied in Passau and Göttingen (Germany), in Bangor (UK) as well as in Shanghai. I was educated in Germany and in Colombia. I have worked for the International Organization for Migration in Beijing, for the investment bank Berenberg in London, for the auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in Hamburg and for the human rights organization Memorial in Moscow. I have grown up bilingual German and Spanish and I now also speak Chinese, Russian, French and Italian.
I am an immigration and tax lawyer, similar to an immigration or tax attorney in the US or an immigration or tax solicitor in England & Wales.
