Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. Maybe you should try to insist on the Auslandsamt's (not your!) initial mistake. You had no doubt everything was fine with your visa and now - this?!

  2. I wouldn't associate your experience with "xenophobia". You have the same thing everywhere. The land isn't everyone's everywhere.

3)I am German but have been away for many years; so my nationality is of little help. I have this idea about German regional mentalities, though, that says you may have less problems with the administration in the old Lander - in Hamburg, Frankfurt or Munich, especially as an American academic. Maybe I'm mistaken, and maybe it wouldn't be an option for you to move if you have your ties in Jena and some job prospects already.
