Residence Permit

New: Appointments at the Foreigners' Office Aachen

Important Notice to International Students at the FH Aachen

The Department of International Affairs at the FH Aachen informs all international students at the FH Aachen who reside in the City of Aachen or the StädteRegion Aachen that, with immediate effect, an advance appointment by email is required at the Foreigners' Office Aachen: auslaenderamt(at)  

On account of a stand-in arrangement, it is, at this time, unfortunately not possible for students to spontaneously go to the Foreigners' Office Aachen without an appointment in order to, for example, apply for the first student residence permit or extend the student residence permit.

Please also make sure to apply for an extension of your residence permit before your currently valid residence permit expires, as a failure to observe this may entail considerable legal difficulties for you. If a study progress certificate is required, it can be handed in later.

If your residence permit expires before the agreed-upon appointment, according to the Foreigners' Office your application will still be regarded as being within time, if the appointment was made before the expiration of your residence permit. We strongly recommend applying for an appointment by email early on, though, preferably 4 weeks before the expiration of your residence permit. More information
