The corona epidemic is also affecting people who were to stay in Germany for three months without a visa or with a limited “Schengen visa”. It may be possible that these people are unable to leave the country because of the corona measures. In such cases, the local foreigner’s office can extend the visa by up to six months due to humanitarian reasons or issue a tolerance permit. The Asylum Centre Tübingen points out that affected persons have to submit a corresponding application before the expiry of the legal residence period.
