Migrants facing German bureaucracy | DW Documentary

Migrants who want to settle in Germany have to deal with its bureaucracy. The process can be a frustrating one, especially given backlogs at government offices.

Every year, Cuban Yairan Montejo has to renew his German residence permit in order to keep living in the country. What may sound like a simple process often causes him frustration and distress: appointments are difficult to get, and many government officials are not as understanding as he would like. Will he achieve his goal of obtaining a permanent residence permit? For Catalina Fajardo from Colombia, things are somewhat easier. The kindergarten teacher is about to come to Germany with the support of a placement agency – because skilled workers are desperately needed. But before that can happen, she needs to pass a language test. Kathrin Wesolowski follows both of them as they navigate German bureaucracy.
