    Can you receive unemployment benefits (Arbeitlosengeld I) while on this visa?

    1. Avatar Germany Simplified says:

      You cannot receive that benefit when you are in this Visa. There are different requirements for that. We shall have a post coming soon detailing about Arbeitlosengeld. Please do subscribe to our emails to stay updated.

    If i get a German jobseeker VISA and while applying for jobs I find suitable job opportunities outside Germany within Europe. Will this German job seeker VISA make me eligible to immediately have a right to work and live in Europe or the process would be completely different and i will be considered as someone applying from outside Europe? As i understand if i get a job in Germany i would be able to get work permit immediately after getting job in Germany but what if there is an opportunity outside Germany in Europe.
    Thanks. I hope i was able to make my query clear.

      The German job seeker visa is only for Germany and if you find a job outside Germany, then you would have to initiate the process in the other country.

    I understand that it take upto 3 months to process your application. Will you be handing over your passport to them while waiting for the result?

      No, your passport remains with you and you just give it for stamping later.
