Halo

Wie geht's dir?

I am keen to know how can I get Permanent Residence in Germany,what is the process?

I am an MBA in Marketing and have 13 years of experience in Sales/Marketing,married and have 2 children. We would all want to move there.

I don't have a job offer but would like to gain the PR and come over and then look around for suitable jobs matching my profile.

Kindly guide!! :)

Not sure of the German rules, but in general I think you'll find that you need to establish residence (in any EU country) first - which implies having a job. After 4 to 10 years of renewing your residence annually, you can then apply for a multi-year residence permit, which is what is generally meant as "permanent residence."
Cheers,
Bev

What you are describing sounds more like the Canadian PR path.

In Germany you would need an employer to sponsor you and after several years - usually 5, if you are eligible for BlueCard and meet all requirements maybe a bit earlier, you may apply for an indefinite residence permit.

I think it's unlikely to find a job in marketing unless you speak excellent German and have excellent knowledge of the German culture/market. As sunshine asked - have you worked in DACH before?

There is actually a way for very highly sought after specialists and directors to obtain a NE on arrival in Germany, however, it is rather difficult to meet the requirements (I doubt the TS would qualify).
