Electronic residence permit Grant

The electronic residence permits (eAT) are issued and handed over as a separate document in credit card format with additional electronic functions. Inside the map, the eAT has a contactless chip on which biometric features (characteristics: photo and two fingerprints after the age of 6), ancillary provisions relating to the residence permit (e.g. for gainful employment) and personal data are stored. In addition, the chip receives an electronic proof of identity and the possibility to use an electronic signature.

The following residence permits are issued in the format of the electronic residence permit (eAT):
  • Residence permit
  • Permission to establish
  • Permission to permanent residence-EC
  • Residence card for third-country nationals Family members of a Union citizen or a national of an EEA State
  • Permanent residence card for third-country nationals family members of a Union citizen or a national of an EEA State
  • Residence permit for Swiss and their third-country nationals of family if they choose an eAT

Process flow

The introduction of the electronic residence permit (eAT) has an impact on the entire process at the competent authority. In any case, a waiting period of four to six weeks is to be expected between the application and the handing over of the eAT, as the tickets are produced exclusively at the Bundesdruckerei in Berlin.
 
Due to the need to store the biometric data on the chip inside the card, two fingerprints will have to be taken by applicant persons (including children and adolescents aged 6 yearsand over). Therefore, in all cases, even in the case of existing authorisations, a personal consultation is necessary when applying. Longer processing and waiting times at the competent authority are to be expected.
 
The previous residence permits, which have been pasted into the travel documents as a label, remain valid even after the introduction of the eAT, at the most until 31.08.2021. An issue of the eAT before the expiry of the valid residence permit is therefore only provided if there is a legitimate interest in the reissue.
