Crossing the border with an automatically extended residence permit

Can Ukrainians expect difficulties crossing the border as their residence permit expires in March 2024? No. The residence permits of refugees from Ukraine who fled Russian aggression and received protection in Germany have been automatically extended. They are valid until March 4, 2025. This was notified in accordance with the Schengen Borders Code (SGK). This means that the Schengen states are informed about the automatic extension of the residence permit in accordance with Section 24 of the Residence Act. A spokesman for the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) responded to a query from tuenews INTERNATIONAL. It was also published in the official gazette. “The regulation is therefore known and valid in all Schengen states, for example Poland,” said the spokesman. This also means that Ukrainians do not have to apply for an extension of their residence status and do not have to visit the immigration authorities (see tun23112910).
