Applying for a residence title.

Citizens of non-EU countries need a residence title (Aufenthaltserlaubnis) for stays exceeding 3 months if not exempted by a special agreement. The application is dealt with at the Immigration Office Bonn (Ausländeramt).

Overview

Please note: Due to the pandemic spread of the corona virus, the service is restricted until further notice. In order to protect against the risk of infection we have switched to processing customer applications online and in writing. We ask for your understanding for this measure. 

If you wish to submit an application to the Immigration Office Bonn, please use the form "Application for a residence title" under "Forms and Links". 

Please note that due to the large number of requests, the processing will take some time. You will receive a response from us as soon as possible. We thank you for refraining from any further inquiries regarding your application!

Foreigners generally require a residence title based on the purpose of their stay.

There are the following types of residence titles:

  • Visa
  • Residence permit
  • EU Blue Card
  • ICT Car
  • Mobile ICT Card
  • Permanent settlement permit
  • EU long-term residence 

All residence titles are issued in credit card format as an "electronic residence title" (eAT). These are not produced at the Immigration Office Bonn, but at the Federal Printing Office in Berlin. The procedure takes about 6-8 weeks.

Further information regarding the eAT can be found below under "Forms and Links".
