a poster in another forum stated he/she just received approved residency card in Germany. On a whim I looked up the requirements and they don't seem unreasonable for a nation to require of people who want to live in that country. What do you all think? just seems fair.


German Residence Permit Requirements
To be given any of the residence permits, you will need to fulfill a few requirements. Most of them will be the same, such as:

Have a valid passport from another country
Not have a criminal record
Be proficient in German in at least a B1 level
Have German health insurance
Pass a health check which proves you are healthy enough to work and/or study
Be financially stable and support yourself and your family
If you will work in Germany, you will need a letter from your employer with the job offer and description
If you will study in Germany, you will need proof that you have been admitted into a university
If you will join your spouse in Germany, you will need proof of marriage such as a marriage certificate
If you have all of these documents and fulfill the requirements, then you can begin your application process.

For France:

France Residence Permit Requirements

Differently from when applying for a French visa for which you apply from your country of residence, you will have to apply within France when it comes to a French residence permit. If your France long-stay visa is marked with the words “carte de séjour à solliciter” then you will have to apply within two months of your arrival in France at the local authorities. Whereas, if your France visa is marked with the words “CESEDA R.311-3”, you will need to contact the Office Francais de I‘Immigration et de I‘Integration (OFFI) as soon as you arrive in France.

To apply for a France Residence Permit, you should prepare the following documents for submission:

Your valid passport with the French long-stay visa stamped on it.
A copy of the important pages of your passport, including the pages with stamps.
Birth Certificate produced in your home country.
Two photographs according to the ICAO standards.
Proof of residence, which can be an electricity bill, statement of domicile, rent receipt etc.
Proof of income:
if employed – work contract and latest payment slips.
if self-employed – proof on their status.
retired or unemployed: proof on having the adequate financial means to live in France.
Medical Insurance.
if you are married or you have kids then you will have to submit a certificate of marriage and birth certificates of your children.
Translations of every document that is not in French.

I wonder if these apply to the “refugees” from Africa and the Middle East, or do they get a free pass?

Of course they get a free pass. The stingent requirements only apply to educated people who can support themselves and speak the language.
