In the next few weeks, the state government of Baden-Württemberg will personally and actively inform approximately 10,000 people in a letter about the possibility of the “Beschäftigungsduldung”. These persons are “tolerated” and pursue employment. However, due to a negative asylum procedure, they are actually obliged to leave the country.
When asked, Gunter Carra, deputy press spokesman of the Ministry of Justice and Migration Baden-Württemberg, told tünews INTERNATIONAL: “In this information letter, tolerated persons are informed about the requirements, the application and the necessary documents for an employment toleration. During this phase, deportation is suspended. After 30 months, there is the possibility of obtaining a residence permit and thus legal residence in Germany.” Asylum seekers who arrived in Germany before 1.1.2018, have been working for at least 18 months, can support themselves through work and can speak German at A2 level can apply for an employment toleration. An employment toleration also applies to the family members of the employees.
The Baden-Württemberg Crafts Council (BWHT) welcomes this action by the state government. “The skilled labor situation in Baden-Württemberg’s skilled trades has been tense for a long time,” said BWHT President Rainer Reichhold to the Deutsche Presse-Agentur. Companies are working hard to integrate refugees and most of them have had good experiences in employing refugees. “It is often difficult to explain when well-integrated employees suddenly have to leave the company again after several years because they are no longer allowed to stay in Germany,” said Reichhold.
Further information on employment toleration is available from the Baden-Württemberg Refugee Council at: 2019-12 Broschuere Beschaeftigungsduldung_Version Dez.pdf (fluechtlingsrat-bw.de)
