What does an Ermessensduldung mean?
An “Ermessensduldung” (discretionary suspension of removal) is issued, if a person cannot be removed from a country due to reasons of public, humanitarian or personal interest (§ 60a Abs, 2 Satz 3 AufenthG). “Discretionary” in this context does not mean that the authorities decide in an arbitrary fashion on an individual level. Rather it implies that there are several possible decisions. Each decision is made based on certain criteria. For example, if somebody has found a place for an apprenticeship and is to begin this apprenticeship within 6 months, he is a likely candidate for an “Ermessensduldung”. During the apprenticeship he can then be issued a “Ausbildungsduldung” (training tolerment). If one has to care to family members or cannot receive a specific medical treatment, they qualify for this form of tolerment as well.
