Wanted this^ clarified from a long time. Adding to that, if my second year is in TU Berlin, I will still get the 18-month extension offered by Germany, right? Or does it have to be a 2-year course to get that visa extension?

alok.surve My understanding is that you will get 1 year residence permit for Sweden and by the end of the year, you will have to apply for the residence permit of Germany. That you will have to check that if you can apply from German embassy in Stockholm or will you need to return to India to apply for that.

In that case, it will be easier to try to look for further opportunities in Germany as it will be hard to return back to Sweden then because you will have no reason to return back. You can check if you will be eligible to get extension to search for jobs in Germany.

I personally feel that the mobility requirement of the EIT programs is not very feasible for the Non-Eu nationals.

I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not.

spiketospica Nope. Because when you apply for the residence permit, you need to have a reason for that. Since you have already completed the studies there so there is no reason for that.

Also you should note the difference in the extension of the existing residence permit and applying for the new permit. You can apply for the extension only if its already valid. So for example, when you move to other country after the first year, you get new residence permit for the other country and your existing residence permit becomes invalid, so you cannot extend it.

Yes you can. In my program, we were in Eindhoven in first year and then moved to KTH. 2 of us stayed back in Sweden as we found jobs, 3 of them went to Germany to do their thesis and continued towards a PhD. The rest moved to the Netherlands after graduation, applied for a job seeking visa and stayed there to look for jobs.

You can stay in any country in Europe and look for jobs elsewhere. All depends on the expiry date on your residence permit. Sweden doesnt permit you to stay if you are no longer a student or have a job.. Netherlands, Germany, Denmark etc. you can get a job search visa and live there..

@spiketospica.. The university in Netherlands will usually not give you an extension once you move to Sweden.. instead you can apply on your own for a job seeking visa (In Netherlands) while you are studying in Sweden and before your study permit expires.

As for Germany, I tried applying in German embassy in Stockholm for an extension.. However, they do require lot of specific details - companies you want to apply to, city you want to stay in, finances and so on.. they asked me instead to go back to India and apply for the German extension..

But, I got a job in the meantime, so I applied for a permit in Sweden..

Thanks for the reply!

But your thesis was in Germany right? In ENTECH programme, the whole 2nd year is in Karlsruhe, Germany. There's got to be a difference?

No. I was in KIC SELECT program. First year in Netherlands. Second year in Sweden along with thesis. Since my permit was expiring soon in Sweden and I had no job yet, I decided to apply for job search visa in Germany - which I could even though I did not study there. I went to the German embassy here in Stockholm. But too many documents and before I applied, I got a job here in Sweden.! Hope this clarifies.

billa & kvbharadwaj2006

So, irrespective of whether the candidate has pursued Traditional Masters or EIT Masters, the candidate can apply a job search extension visa in any other country from the country the candidate has graduated.

In case of graduation from Germany, one needs to have a job offer in hand from Sweden, only then one can apply for permit & move to Sweden, as technically Sweden as of now does not provide any " job search extension"

However, in case of graduation from Sweden, one can apply for "German job search extension visa" as Germany unlike Sweden offers this kind. That allows us to move to Germany, stay & search jobs. It's not required to have a job offer in hand unlike above.

Please clarify, if wrong

@alok.surve: Firstly, not all countries have this option. Secondly, some countries have a points system (Like Netherlands and Denmark) which you need to fulfill to apply for an extension. So, following links might help.

Yes. For Sweden, they do not allow such extensions yet. There is a current discussion to change this system and introduce job search visa due to lack of technical manpower. Maybe in a year or two, but can't predict.

Yes. You can move to Germany after Sweden. Still the German officials at the embassy encouraged me to instead apply from India as processing time is usually 1 - 2 month and my permit was expiring in 2 weeks. I would still recommend Netherlands instead. Expensive application costs, but you get it for a year and I already know few of them who did this.

To apply for German extension if living in Sweden (German embassy in Sweden):

For Denmark Green card scheme:
http://www.nyidanmark.dk/en-us/coming_to...rd-scheme/

For Netherlands extension:
https://ind.nl/EN/individuals/residence-...fault.aspx


This might be a slight deviation but somewhat related to moving to other countries for job search. But nobody told me this seriously while I was studying. If you want to get a job in Europe, learn the language - German, Dutch, Swedish, any other. English is just not enough.!!

I don't know about Germany, but for other countries as far I know, job seeking visa is an 'extension' to your existing visa and you are eligible for it if you have studied in that specific country. For example here's quote from Finland migration website:

Quote:It is possible to grant a permit for seeking employment only as an extended permit, only once and only in Finland.

I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not.

@[Alok.surve] As the 2nd year of your masters in Germany, you will get 1 year visa extension in germany which is a schengan visa so you can reside in any schengan country and look for the jobs. Even you will be eligible for a danish visa as you're doing masters in europe and australian visa as TU berlin has some tie ups.
