Apply for an extension of the residence permit to carry out a qualification measure

The residence permit for the implementation of a qualification measure is a temporary residence permit. You can apply for the extension of the residence permit if the qualification measure(s) has not yet compensated for the identified deficits in foreign qualifications, e.B because you have to repeat an examination or the examinations are preceded by long waiting times.

The same conditions apply to the renewal of the residence permit for the implementation of a qualification measure as for the granting of it. In particular, your livelihood should be secured for the entire duration of the qualification measure(s).

In the event of an extension, your residence permit will again be limited in time. The residence permit for the implementation of a qualification measure can be extended by six months. However, the total length of stay for the purpose of carrying out the qualification measures may not exceed two years.

As a rule, the residence permit cannot be extended if this has already been ruled out when the residence permit was issued or last extended.
