I have a question, for which I can't find an answer in the Internet. Right now I live and work in Germany, and I'm a holder of Blau Card for 14 month now.
In the next month I will get a new travel passport from my native country due to expiration, and I will need to get a new Blau Card because of it.
My question is: will this operation reset 18-month period of Blau Card holding needed for visa-exempt basis work in another EU member and qualification period for EU long-term residence permit?
If you have already held an EU Blue Card in another EU Member State for at least 18 months, you can enter country on a visa-exempt basis in order to work.
All periods of residence of 18 months or longer with the EU Blue Card count towards the qualification period of EU long-term residence permit
