I just returned to the U.S. from Germany after my work visa was rejected
I entered the Schengen zone on July 30th, 2018 and began looking for work out there casually. I received a job offer from a start-up and began applying for a work permit. In the meantime, as my Schengen time was nearly up, the ausländerbehörde gave me a fiktionsbescheinigung.
Later, this office rejected my request for a visa. I left the Schengen zone to the states on the 12th of December.
I am wondering how long I have to wait in order to return to the Schengen zone, so that I can begin to look for work out there again. I am looking for a company to support an EU-blue card and in my opinion it is best to look there rather than attempt to find a position from the states.
