Government Procedure Manuals

  • Internal guidelines by the Federal Ministry of the Interior for application of the Residence Act and the Freedom of Movement for EU Citizens Act (The EU free movement content is entitled Vorläufige Anwendungshinweise zum FreizügG/ EU and begins on PDF page 392). From the 1st paragraph of the PDF: “[These guidelines] issued by the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) serve as working instructions for the employees of the alien authorities. [They] are not a law; the interpretations they include tend to be worded in a restrictive way, may be incorrect and are not binding for the courts.”
