If you wish to relocate your main place of residence to the Region of Bayreuth, and are not a citizen of a member state of the European Union (EU), of the European Economic Area (EWR) or of Switzerland, the regulations of the laws of residency are of especial importance.
In this case you will require a title of residency for your entry and stay. There are different titles of residency:
The permit of residence, the EU Blue Card, the ICT Card, the Mobile ICT Card, the permit for permanent residence – EU, the permit of settlement and the Visa.
The permit of residence, the EU Blue Card, the ICT Card, the Mobile ICT Card and the visa are each issued for a limited period. The permit of settlement and the Permit for Permanent Residence – EU are issued for an unlimited period of time.
The main difference between the settlement permit and the permit for permanent residence – EU is that the permit for permanent residence – EU includes a right to move on to another EU member state. A residence title entitles the holder to pursue gainful employment, provided this is stipulated in the Residence Act or the residence title expressly permits this.
