Whether you are allowed to work in Germany depends on your Aufenthaltstitel (residence permit).
Your residence permit is in your passport. It affects the status of your Arbeitserlaubnis (work permit):
- EU citizens may work in Germany, look for a job or be self-employed without prior permission.
- If you have not applied for a work permit via a visa in your country of origin, you must submit an application to the Ausländerbehörde (Aliens’ Registration Office) in Karlsruhe.
Please make an appointment by phoning 115 or contacting the office online at: www.karlsruhe.de/b4/buergerdienste/terminvereinbarung.de
