Well-integrated tolerated persons should be given the prospect of staying. The state government of Baden-Württemberg has agreed on this. Those affected will no longer be deported with immediate effect. This applies to all refugees who receive a right to stay in Germany according to the rules of the planned Right of Opportunity Residence, as the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Migration announced in Stuttgart. The federal government’s right of opportunity to stay is to apply to all those who have lived in Germany for at least five years from 1 January 2022. This is intended to give foreigners without a secure residence title in Germany the prospect of permanent residence. However, the Bundestag must first give its approval. Prerequisites for a long-term residence title are a secure livelihood, German language skills and proof of identity. In addition, well-integrated young people and adolescents up to 27 years of age (previously: 21 years) are to be granted the right to stay after only three years of residence (previously: four years).
